An American artist living in Rome, Wendy Artin worked for over a decade on a series of watercolor paintings of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and related subjects. This exhibition, which ran in two phases from June 5 to July 26 and September 25 to October 25, 2015, featured a selection of her paintings.
Wendy Artin is one of a long line of artists who draw inspiration from antiquity. Indeed, this tradition has very ancient precedents, such as the Roman practice of making marble “copies” of famous Greek bronze statues. Artin’s visually stunning paintings offer fresh and arresting ways of looking at ancient sculptures and buildings.
