Neoclassical Musings

Kathryn Calley Galitz, art historian and Educator, The Met

“Classical Borrowings from the Romans to the Carters”

Explore the legacy of classicism and its continued relevance today. The Romans were the first to revive the culture of the ancient Greeks, which has resonated in Western art from the Renaissance through to today’s hip-hop culture. Discover how the Neoclassical style, which flourished in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, defined the imperial image of Napoleon I, as crafted by François Gérard in a magisterial group of portraits of the emperor and his extended family.
