Beazley and Christ Church: 250 Years of Scholarship on Greek Vases
Sir John Beazley, the world’s greatest scholar of Athenian figure-decorated pottery, held his first academic position at Christ Church, and the library houses
rare and important books on ancient Greek art. The exhibition open in the Upper Library presents Beazley’s work and assesses his lasting influence.
A comprehensive catalogue has been produced, which will not only serve as a companion to the exhibition, but also as an aid to undergraduates studying
for Mods, Prelims, Greats, and Finals, postgraduates, and anyone else interested in Greek vases and the history of scholarship.
The exhibition (open from 26 January to 3 May 2016) is curated by Diana Rodríguez Pérez, Thomas Mannack and Cristina Neagu.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 10.00 am – 12.30 pm; 2:00 pm – 4.30 pm
Tuesday, Thursday: 10.00 am – 12.30 pm; 2.00 pm – 3.30 pm (provided there is a member of staff available in the Upper Library).
