Athens; Museum of Cycladic Art; “‘Figures’ loved and idealized” illustrating poems by C.P.Cavafy

27.11.2013-30.03.2014

“Figures loved and idealised ..”  Illustrating poems by C.P.Cavafy

a beautiful exhibition on Thursday morning touring the Cycladic museum

«Figures loved and idealised …». Illustrating poems by C.P.Cavafy

The exhibition “Figures’ loved and idealised …Illustrating poems by C.P.Cavafy” focuses on figures that play a leading role in Cavafy’s poetry. Inspired by the verse “Voices, loved and idealized” from Cavafy’s poem Voices, the exhibition uses archaeological artefacts to illustrate a selection of poems with mythological and, especially, historical subjects, which experts believe comprise approximately one third of Cavafy’s work.

The exhibition is curated by Prof. Nicholas Chr. Stampolidis, Maria D.Tolis, Mimika Giannopoulou

my favorite walk in the museum is thru the Archaic Gallery

Photo published @ the acropolis museum

Archaic is the period throughout the 7th century BC, until the end of the Persian Wars (480/79 BC). This period is characterized by the development of the city-state and the transition from aristocracy to tyranny and, eventually, democracy. It is also characterized by great achievements in the economy, art and intellectual life….

in the south side of the gallery, the depictions of the young women (Korai) is my favorite corner.
