The Search for Alexander: An Exhibition

Some brief overview of book

Introductory section on Alexander and his heritage followed by discussion of the Royal Tombs at Vergina, from which many objects in this exhibition came. Catalogue focuses specifically on Alexander the Great and the art his time. 173 works of marble, gold, silver, bronze, ivory, and terracotta of the 4th and 3d centuries B.C. from Greek, European, and American public and private collections included portraits of Philip of Macedon and Alexander the Great.

A gold casket, a gold wreath of oak leaves, and armor from the royal tomb at Vergina, thought to be that of Philip, were among the highlights loaned from the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, where the larger original exhibition was first shown. This blockbuster exhibition, in preparation with Greek authorities for many years, included recent finds from Macedonian tombs from the age of Alexander. The exhibition was coordinated by the National Gallery with the cooperation of the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sciences, and supported by the National Bank of Greece and Time Inc. for the participants in its United States tour.

Gaillard Ravenel and Mark Leithauser designed the exhibition and Gordon Anson designed the lighting for the National Gallery.
