EXTRA INFORMATION

Artists, Italy and the beauty ideals of the 18th century
The human body has fascinated artists through the ages. In the middle of the eighteenth century this subject was given a new performance in art by spectacular excavations in Italy. Among others, Canova, Thorvaldsen, Mengs, Kauffman and Batoni strived for the ultimate perfection: even better than the (aesthetic) ideal of the Greeks and Romans. Many artists and aspiring young people are steaming to Italy to find out the inspiration. In the exhibition, the name of the Grand Tour takes the best examples of this neoclassical art from the collection of the Hermitage.

Classic Beauties becomes a feast for the eyes with a beautiful Canova collection, including the absolute masterpiece De Drie Gratiën. On display from 16 June 2018 to 13 January 2019.
