"The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection" opens in Cleveland
The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 destroyed, yet paradoxically preserved the ancient city of Pompeii, providing a vivid glimpse into the daily lives of ancient Romans. Since the rediscovery of the site in the 1700s, centuries of leading artists—from Piranesi, Ingres and Alma-Tadema to Duchamp, Rothko, Warhol and Gormley — have been inspired to re-imagine it in paintings, sculpture, photographs, performance and film. While exhibitions dedicated to the archaeology of Pompeii have been numerous, this is the first time this ancient city and cataclysmic event is explored through the lens of modern creators and thinkers. Featuring nearly 100 works, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection will be on view from February 24 through July 7, 2013.

Gormley's sculpture was inspired by Gormley's 2002 visit to Pompeii. The exhibition will be on view from Feb. 24 through July 7, 2013. CLEVELAND, OH.- The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 destroyed, yet paradoxically preserved the ancient city of Pompeii, providing a vivid glimpse into the daily lives of ancient Romans. Since the rediscovery of the site in the 1700s, centuries of leading artists—from Piranesi, Ingres and Alma-Tadema to Duchamp, Rothko, Warhol and Gormley — have been inspired to re-imagine it in paintings, sculpture, photographs, performance and film. While exhibitions dedicated to the archaeology of Pompeii have been numerous, this is the first time this ancient city and cataclysmic event is explored through the lens of modern creators and thinkers. Featuring nearly 100 works, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection will be on view from February 24 through July 7, 2013. Organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum, the title of the exhibition, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection, is inspired by Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s Last Days of Pompeii, an incredibly popular 1834 novel that combined a Victorian love story with sensational subplots of pagan decadence, Christianity and volcanic eruption. The book was presented as archaeologically accurate and helped transform Pompeii into a place to stage fiction. It captivated generations of readers, prompted tourists to visit the site and inspired many works of art in a wide variety of media. “Each generation creates a new Pompeii for themselves,” stated Jon Seydl, exhibition co-organizer and The Paul J. and Edith Ingalls Vignos, Jr. Curator of European Paintings and Sculpture (1500-1800) at the Cleveland Museum of Art. “It’s an astonishingly rich subject for artists, who have returned over and over again to Pompeii, remaking it to suit the preoccupations of their own time.” Mixing chronology and media, the exhibition breaks down according to three broad themes. Decadence looks at why we consider Pompeii as a place of luxury, sex, violence and excess. Apocalypse explores Pompeii as the archetype of disaster—the cataclysm to which all others are compared—from the American Civil War and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to 9/11. And Resurrection considers how Pompeii has become a place to re-create and recast the ancient past. The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection contains six galleries of remarkable works of art exploring these ideas from more than fifty public and private collections in Europe and the United States, including the Louvre, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. Appearing only in Cleveland is a suite of ten large paintings by Mark Rothko, preliminary studies for the Seagram Building commission in the late 1950s. Rothko eventually withdrew from the project, and this is the first time these ten works have been exhibited in the same space. Also appearing in the Cleveland show is a 1991 installation called The Dog from Pompei by American artist, Allan McCollum, which brings together 16 replicas of perhaps the best-known of all the body casts from Pompeii, a startling work that has a powerful impact on the visitor. “The scale of the disaster and the remarkable archaeological record have inspired some of the most interesting and important artists of the last three centuries,” stated Seydl. “All these artists used Pompeii to create entirely new stories that tell us much more about their own time than about antiquity.” Share on facebook Share on linkedin Share on twitter Share on email Share on print More Sharing Services 11 Today's News February 24, 2013 "The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection" opens in Cleveland Christie's New York presents the Sale of Indian and Southeast Asian Art in March Franz West: Where is my Eight? opens at Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Major Exhibition offers unprecedented examination of Picasso's black-and-white palette Leading and emerging artists at Christie's Sale of South Asian Modern and Contemporary Art in March Hammer Galleries launches interactive virtual tour of exhibition of works by Grandma Moses and other masters Guggenheim presents No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia Art Institute of Chicago now offering tours for handheld devices with "Indoor GPS" New exhibition of contemporary art investigates the visual dialogue of the 1980s Banksy graffiti work pulled from US sale; work disappeared from a London wall earlier this month Exhibition of photographs by August Sander and Sherrie Levine on view at Paula Cooper Gallery New series of oil paintings by Michael Bauer on view at Alison Jacques Gallery Surrey auctioneer Ewbank's to sell Francis Bacon 'Screaming Pope' paintings Installation of "Edward Steichen's Glamour Photography" shows Hollywood's Golden Age National Music Centre of Canada breaks ground in Calgary Julia Montilla brings the collective imaginary of Marian apparitions to the Joan Miró Foundation PinchukArtCentre presents "Forest Means Cheaper", a solo show by Alexey Salmanov Tache Art hosts "CMYK", its first solo exhibition with Sudanese-born artist Mutaz El Emam Ryan Travis Christian spends three weeks creating large-scale wall drawing at CAM Raleigh Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery in Auckland presents exhibition by Jimmy James Kouratoras Most Popular Last Seven Days 1.- Little Black Gallery introduces the work of emerging photographer Tyler Udall 2.- Frick presents first U.S. exhibition on Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca 3.- Spain's Prado Museum finds 'unique' painting of French ruler Louis of Orleans 4.- Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane Masterpiece Drawings from the Casa Buonarroti opens in Virginia 5.- Sotheby's Contemporary Art Sale brings £74.4m/$116.4m- 2nd highest total for a February auction in London 6.- 1901: A momentous and turbulent year for Pablo Picasso explored in new exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery 7.- Archaeologists find large sculpture of Huehuetéotl, God of Fire, atop the Pyramid of the Sun 8.- Philadelphia's Institute of Contemporary Art opens exhibition of artists engaged with clothing 9.- Archaeologists find large sculpture of Huehuetéotl, God of Fire, atop the Pyramid of the Sun 10.- Renowned ancient Roman mosaic from Israel, on international tour, makes final U.S. stop at the Penn Museum Banksy Arrest Just One Giant Hoax Abstract Expressionism's Softer Side This Year's Armory Show Lineup Is Finally Released Hollywood Glamour At Its Most Irresistible Kara Walker Calls New Exhibit Her 'Never-Ending War With Race' Four Explosive Works From New York Art Giant Julian Schnabel LOOK: Real-Life Supervillains Become Comic Characters Happy Birthday, Ansel Adams!
