The genre of Greek and Roman myths in mythological sculpture was popularised in the Renaissance through the rediscovery of ancient texts, art and architecture. Patrons of such subject matters could express their erudition, taste, and social prominence partly through the commission of mythological scenes.
Greek mythology has inspired all forms of art throughout history. Yet through the medium of sculpture, myths can be alluringly retold, expressing the spiritualism, dynamism and symbolism of these ancient stories. Just as the great Renaissance collectors curated collections of mythological sculptures, you too can build your collection with our expertly selected sculptures.
