Join Boston Athenaeum docent Carolyn Hilles-Pilant for an exploration of the life and work of Horatio Greenough and Thomas Crawford, two American Neoclassical sculptors who expatriated to Italy in the early nineteenth century despite quarantines and other misadventures. The politics and popular aesthetics of their day provide a context for understanding the importance of these artists to their time, as well as ours. The tour will spotlight three sculptures in the Athenaeum's collections: Venus Vitrix and Judgement of Paris by Greenough and Adam and Eve by Crawford.
