Defining Beauty: The Body In Ancient Greek ArtTaking place in the Sainsbury's Exhibition Gallery, the British Museum's big spring blockbuster is Defining Beauty: The Body In Ancient Greek Art. The exhibition examines how Greek art represented the human body and features world-famous sculptures alongside amazing frescoes and pottery. A highlight will be the Belvedere Torso which, once named 'the most famous Greek body in Europe', will be lent to the UK from the Vatican. The exhibition will also look at how Greeks explored the body's sexual and social identity, including how they venerated the toned male body of athletes and how gods and other beings of myth and supernatural are depicted.

 

About British Museum

Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
