Defining Beauty

An exhibit at the British Museum:

The Greeks were truly revolutionary on their approach to the human form in art. They showed the nude body, idealised and perfect. Many works we have are, of course, Roman copies. This show is stunning.

Before even entering, I saw through the door the marble of Aphrodite bathing, a bronze warrior and the Discobolus.

It's emotional, people.

Gorgeous show. Go see it. Then walk through the antiquity galleries by way of comparison. Organic learning.
