Ancient Art at Dumbarton Oaks

February 10, 2020–July 2021

Art from the ancient Mediterranean represents a small but significant part of Dumbarton Oaks’ collections. The works were acquired to complete the collection’s documentation of the history of artistic styles, techniques, and iconographies. When viewed alongside Byzantine art, they offer an opportunity to consider the continuities and changes in artistic production from the classical to medieval periods.

This reinstallation has been curated by Elizabeth Dospěl Williams, Associate Curator of the Byzantine Collection, and Kelsey Eldridge, PhD Candidate in the History of Art at Harvard University and 2019–2021 William R. Tyler Fellow.
