Bronze at London's Royal Academy of Arts | Culture24 | Art History & Literary Studies | Scoop.it

"Spanning 5,000 years via classical gods, Japanese incense burners and Henry Moore, the Royal Academy's display is the largest cross-cultural show of bronze sculpture ever attempted.

 

For more than 5,000 years, bronze has been used as an artistic medium for creating sculptures, from antiquity in the Middle East, China, Egypt and Greece to rising prominence in Asia, Africa and the rest of Europe.

 

The Royal Academy of Arts celebrates this long inheritance with this unique and wide-ranging exhibition featuring an eclectic and diverse selection of 150 of the most outstanding bronze sculptures in the world from prehistory to the present."
