The Art Institute’s collection houses one of the very few bronzes to have survived from antiquity—a monumental bronze statue of the god Dionysos on long-term loan to the museum. While its arresting beauty and imposing scale are immediately apparent, equally fascinating aspects of the sculpture are hidden away. Join conservator Rachel Sabino for a discussion of the recent technical studies on this important object, revealing new information about its dramatic history, ancient casting methods, and previous restorations.
