Exhibition: La Grèce des origines. Entre rêve et archéologie

In France at the end of the 19th century, archaeologists and the general public discovered – amid a flurry of images, designs, gold and colours – the civilisations that have occupied Greece over millennia. Both archaeological science and modern art were profoundly affected. The exhibition La Grèce des origines, entre rêve et archéologie (The origins of Greece – between dreams and archaeology) reveals unpublished archive documents and contemporary photographs from the collections of many French museums that illustrate how this most ancient Greek past was interpreted during the Belle Epoque period.

This exhibition is organised by La Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais, in partnership with the Musée du Louvre and the French School at Athens.

Curators: Anaïs Boucher, curator of the comparative archaeology department, Musée d’Archéologie nationale

Associate curators: Pascal Darcque, director of research at CNRS, Hara Procopiou, senior lecturer at Paris I and Zoi Tsirtsoni, researcher at CNRS.
