Lunchtime Lecture: New Light on an Ancient Bronze
Speaker: Seth Pevnick, Curator of Greek and Roman Art, and Colleen Snyder, Associate Conservator of Objects
Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history to learn about ongoing research on the Cleveland Apollo.
Since its acquisition nearly 20 years ago, the Cleveland Apollo has taken its place as both a CMA visitor favorite and a rare example of a nearly intact large-scale ancient bronze sculpture. Cast in hollow bronze sections using the indirect lost-wax technique, the sculpture still appears strikingly lifelike today, many centuries after its creation. Learn more about the latest CMA research into its ancient manufacture and modern reconstruction.
