Event Details

The Arcadian myth, rooted, among others, in Virgil’s Bucolics (Eclogues), envisions an ideal world governed by unchanging order, filled with serenity, happiness, eternal youth, freedom and uninhibited eroticism. The exhibition brings together various interpretations of the theme, which has left a lasting mark on European culture. From the modern era onward, artists have revisited Arcadian motifs, depicting the charming realm of shepherds, shepherdesses, nymphs and satyrs. They have also metaphorically related to these themes, communicating, in various ways, the human longing for happiness. The Arcadian topos found expression in images of courtly gardens, rural noble estates, exotic lands and picturesque regions, where one could feel a harmonious bond with nature.
