Antiquity Rediscovered: Innovation and Resistance in the 18th Century features a selection of over one hundred .

Antiquity Rediscovered: Innovation and Resistance in the 18th Century features a selection of over one hundred and fifty major works that illustrate the emergence of the so-called neoclassical movement, which spurred eighteenth-century Europe to look back to Antiquity once again  . The final quarter of the eighteenth century nevertheless saw the lasting affirmation of a more universal idiom whose radical expression focused on heroic values, conveyed here through the themes of the Triumph of Mars, Great Men, the Defense of Virtue, and the Body Magnified.

Other authors: Edgar Peters Bowron (Curator), Helga Kessler-Aurisch (Curator). No current Talk conversations about this book.

While eighteenth-century art is often perceived as a progressive move from a taste for the lightness of rococo to the grandeur .

While eighteenth-century art is often perceived as a progressive move from a taste for the lightness of rococo to the grandeur of classical style, this exhibition sheds light on the different experiments undertaken to regenerate artistic forms and themes. One hundred and fifty works - paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, decorative arts - featured in the exhibition illustrate the processes of innovation, emulation and even resistance to the classical in eighteenth-century Europe. Guillaume Faroult, Musée du Louvre, Department of Paintings; Christophe Leribault, Musée national Eugène Delacroix; Guilhem Scherf, Musée du Louvre, Department of Sculptures.
