      Order, symmetry and reason — the language of classicism — inhabits this diverse selection of artworks from the Gallery’s collection.

      The cultural achievements of the ancient Greeks and Romans have been admired, emulated and revived by artists since the rise and fall of these civilisations. Associated with order, harmony, symmetry and reason, classicism has provided a richly inventive visual language across more than 2000 years.

      Landscapes, mythologies, heroes and heroines echo back and forward across time as they suggest an ancient past alive in the moment these works were created.

      This exhibition is curated entirely from the Gallery’s collection in storage and presents an eclectic selection of works from the 19th to the 21st centuries which draw on classicism and its revivals.

      Cost: Free
