Tom Bass Memorial Address: From the Parthenon to Picasso: How the Classical Ideal Inspired Modern Sculpture and Art

Associate Professor Lesley Beaumont | Sydney

 

Thursday 5 October | 6pm

Join us for the fifth Tom Bass Memorial Address. From Pheidias, Polykleitos and Praxiteles to Michelangelo, Picasso and Rodin, the Classical ideal and form of ancient Greek sculpture has long inspired and influenced the creativity of later artists.

This public lecture, offered in memory of Australian sculptor Tom Bass, traces the echoes of the Classical imagination in Renaissance and modern sculpture and art, and highlights the radical re-invention of the Greek artistic heritage in the post-antique world.
