Let's visit this beautiful exhibition at a quiet time:

Artists, Italy, and the Esthetic Ideals of the 18th century
The human body has fascinated artists throughout the centuries. In the mid-eighteenth century this topic in art was given a new lease of life due to spectacular archaeological discoveries in Italy. Artists like Canova, Thorvaldsen, Mengs, Kauffmann and Batoni pursued ultimate perfection, surpassing even the (aesthetic) ideals of the Greeks and Romans.

Of course you can also see the other exhibitions in this beautiful museum. We can have a drink and bite after in the museum-restaurant after the exhibition.
