It has become a lovely tradition to invite you the 7th edition of ANTIKE IN BASEL this autumn. In a group exhibition international notable specialists will present a selection of fine artworks from the ancient cultures around the Mediterranean – and beyond.
Evidence of art collecting can be traced back at least to Roman times. Interaction with the cultural heritage of their ancestors developed a fascination for the past then – and still does so today. Many artworks tell an exciting story about important events, political incidents or aspects of daily life.
As history has shown, the human needs, fears and hopes of today’s world are not all that different from those manifested in the ancient cultures. With this in mind – see you soon!
