Classical Convergence Poster

Classical mythology has served as inspiration to artists over the centuries, as seen in paintings, prints, sculptures, and other art forms. Prints, which are more easily mass produced than other art forms, and thus are more affordable and widely disseminated, have served as an ideal medium for artistic expression. With the selection of printed imagery in this exhibition, woodcuts, engravings, and etchings, viewers can sample some of the different approaches artists have chosen for depictions of scenes from Classical mythology, ranging from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries.
