The Berlin Painter and His World

Presented by Destination Toledo

Venue: Toledo Museum of Art

City: Toledo

This touring exhibition of ancient Athenian vase-painting, organized by the Princeton University Art Museum, focuses on the art and career of the anonymous artist known as the Berlin Painter. Eighty-four vessels and statuettes of bronze and terracotta from the early fifth century B.C. will be shown, including dozens of the finest vases attributed to the Berlin Painter along with works by other extraordinary artists of the period. The masterpieces are on loan from 15 museums and two private collections, including the British Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the J. Paul Getty Museum; the Vatican's Museo Gregoriano Etrusco and the Musée du Louvre. The painted subjects range from athletics and musical performances to the rich body of Greek myth and epic. The exhibition will be shown at Princeton University (March 4-June 11, 2017) before coming to TMA. The Berlin Painter and His World: Athenian Vase-Painting in the Early Fifth Century B.C. has been organized by the Princeton University Art Museum. Major support for this exhibition has been provided by the Leon Levy Foundation and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The Toledo showing is made possible in part by 2017 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica, Dina and Hicham Aboutaam, and an anonymous donor, with additional support from Christies, Jim and Gregory Demirjian, and Taylor Cadillac, as well as generous gifts received in memory of Kurt Luckner. Admission is free for members and students, $10 for nonmembers.
