"La Riscoperta dell'Antico". The Watercolours of Edward Dodwell and Simone Pomardi

Simone Pomardi. "Mattino inoltrato, ventoso". Watercolour (1805)
Period: 
27/09/2013 - 16/03/2014

The exhibition, curated by John Camp, was inaugurated on 27 September in the Curia Julia at the Roman Forum after having been hosted at the British Museum last Spring with the name "In Search of Classical Greece" and has been extended until 16 March 2014.

Promoted by the Special Superintendency for the Archaeological Heritage of Rome, in collaboration with Electa and the Packard Humanities Institute, the exhibition illustrates the reality and romance of the travels beyond the routes of the Grand Tour by means of detailed depictions of single monuments, sculptures and marvelous landscapes with ruins, mostly watercolours, that  the classical scholar Edward Dodwell (about 1777-1832) and his Italian artist, Simone Pomardi (1757-1830), made during their travels throughout Greece in 1805-1806, in full neoclassical climate.
