An excellent show on Byzantine art is currently on display at the National Gallery in Washington D.C. The show opened on October 6th, but shut down temporarily with U.S. Government, and was rather obscured as a result. Since many folks have been left unaware of the show, we are calling attention to it here.
Specifically, it is an exhibit of works on loan from Greece. It was organized by the Ministry of Culture in Athens, and is a rare opportunity to see these pieces in the U.S.
The show runs until March 2nd and will subsequently be displayed at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles April 9-Auguest 25.
This review in the New York Times includes a good slideshow.
