Collecting and Displaying Byzantine Art in the Medieval, Renaissance, and Modern Periods

Sponsored by J. Paul Getty Museum

AIA Society Event: Los Angeles County

In the Middle Ages, Byzantine objects served purposes that ranged from utilitarian to devotional. Renaissance collectors displayed Byzantine works to suggest their high artistic value, but the full appreciation of the artifacts in the exhibition Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections depends upon the Modernist revolutions of the 19th and 20th centuries. Art historian Robert Nelson of Yale University discusses how Byzantine collections evolved during these periods.

This lecture is presented in conjunction with the symposium Heaven and Earth: Perspectives on Greece's Byzantium at the Getty Villa May 2 and St. Sophia Cathedral on May 3, 2014.

Admission is free, a ticket is required. Call (310) 440-7300.
