Bronze Hellenistic sculpture of young maleHistory of Art and Classical Archaeology Professor, Dr. Peter Holliday wrote a review of the exhibition “Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World”which was at the Getty Museum this spring. “Today only two hundred large-scale bronzes of the Hellenistic era survive, and Power and Pathos assembles some fifty of them in one place, including loans from thirty-four museums in twelve countries, many national treasures. Seeing them together gives a fleeting sense of what residents of ancient cities experienced everyday. It is the first show of its kind, and will probably be the last in our lifetimes.”
