Face-to-face Encounters with Ancient Authors: Portraits in Libraries

17 November 2014 – 23 November 2014

Palace Green Library

This exhibition in Cosin’s Library was the result of a commission of author portraits by photographer Julian Germain, contributing to the exploration of what we experience on seeing the author. 

The exhibition was inspired by a research project funded by the European Research Council and directed by Prof. Barbara Graziosi at Durham University. The project investigated how the poets of ancient Greece and Rome have been represented, through the centuries, in both literature and art.
