Herculaneum Women and the Origins of Archaeology

Traveling abroad for the first time since World War II, the Large and Small Herculaneum Women—two of the most celebrated ancient Roman sculptures—will be on view at the Getty Villa from July 12, 2007 through October 13, 2008 thanks to a rare, extended loan from the Skulpturensammlung, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Germany.

The sculptures are presented with more than a dozen items from the Getty Research Institute collections, including sketchbooks, prints, and rare books of the 16th through 19th centuries, that illustrate the rediscovery of the ancient town of Herculaneum.
