Tour: To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500–1800 (50 min)

2 pm | Sat, June 30, 2018

Assembled entirely from LACMA’s permanent collection, To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500–1800, an examination of a significant moment in early Modern Europe, reflects the donations and gifts from years of support to the museum’s departments of Costume and Textiles, Decorative Arts and Design, Latin American Art, and Prints and Drawings, in addition to European Paintings and Sculpture. These works reveal the depth of Rome’s impact from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, before rising individualism, internationalism, and the optimistic equilibrium between secular and religious forces caused the city’s ultimate marginalization.
