BronzeFor most of us, after the glorious summer of London 2012, bronze evokes images of third place on the podium. But Bronze is also the subject of a new, unprecedented exhibition at the Royal Academy, bringing together outstanding works of bronze from the earliest times to the present in a thematic arrangement that is both fresh and unique. Bronze covers 5,000 years of artwork made from the metal, with pieces by Donatello, Bernini and Rodin. No such cross-cultural exhibition on this scale has ever been attempted, with 150 of the finest bronzes from Asia, Africa and Europe - including important discoveries and archeological excavations - all under one roof, some of them seen in the UK for the very first time. Give Bronze a gold medal.
