National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC) Exhibit – The Dying Gaul: An Ancient Masterpiece from the Capitoline Museum, Rome (December 12, 2013 – March 16, 2014)
Created in the first or second century AD, the Dying Gaul is one of the most renowned works from antiquity. This exhibition marks the first time it has left Italy since 1797, when Napoleonic forces took the sculpture to Paris, where it was displayed at the Louvre until its return to Rome in 1816. A universally recognized masterpiece, the Dying Gaul is a deeply moving celebration of the human spirit.
