By the fifteenth century, a small artistic revolution had begun in Italy, where artists rejected the Gothic style and began recapturing the Graeco-Roman aesthetic in architecture and the human figure. Regardless of subject matter, Gothic artifice ultimately gave way to perfected proportions, classical contrapposto, and stoic bearing. This focus exhibition explores various studies in classical beauty, from the sixteenth to early twentieth centuries.
