Art of the Ancient Greek Horse at the National Sporting Library and Museum

0.00

A collaboration between Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and National Sporting Library and Museum, this exhibition explores the significance of the horse in ancient Greek culture, and imagery of the horse in ancient myth, war, sport, and competition, from some of the earliest examples of the horse in Greek art, to stunning examples of black and red-figure vases.

 

Maximizing the ability to see the objects on all sides was a key organizing principal of this exhibition. Linear cases connected to the walls create a peninsula case condition where the visitor can view the object from both sides of the case. These peninsula cases carve out smaller ‘rooms’ in the gallery that allow for the thematic groupings of the objects. Enlarged graphics unfold the illustrations on the pots, allowing the visitors to discover and enjoy the stories of of the ancient Greeks.
