DescriptionThe Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University is pleased to announce the opening of our 2019 exhibition year with The Neoclassical Gaze: Myth and Reality of Ancient Sculpture from January 22 through March 8, 2019. This exhibition features Wilhelm Gottlieb Becker’s Augusteum (1804-1811), a three-volume publication of engravings illustrating ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. These engravings will be displayed alongside plaster cast reproductions of ancient sculpture on loan from the Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin. These compelling works will be examined from the perspectives of both the ancient world, as well as that of the Neoclassical Revival at the turn of the nineteenth-century, as presented by guest curators, Baylor Art Historians, Dr. Sean DeLouche and Dr. Nathan Elkins.
