Art of Byzantium Travels to U.S.

 

An exhibition titled "Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections" is expected to travel to the United States in the weeks to come, containing some 300 masterpieces from Greek museums, public and private collections and monasteries, as well as finds from recent excavations; it is going to be shown first at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC (October 6, 2013 – March 2, 2014), followed by the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Malibu, California (April 9–August 25, 2014).

The exhibition wants to familiarize the American public with the Hellenic civilization throughout the Byzantine era, and will thus cover all periods of Byzantine history, from 330 to 1453 AD; it is expected that it will comprise five unities, titled From the Ancient to the Byzantine World, The Christian World, The Intellectuals, The Joys of Life and Byzantium at a Crossroads.
