The exhibition looks at the Ionian Islands and Western Greece filtered through the eyes of the Irish painter, traveller and writer on archaeology Edward Dodwell (about 1777-1832) and his Italian artist, Simone Pomardi (1757-1830).
The works kindly lent by the Packard Humanities Institute represent in the early 19th century the landscape and people of the Ionian Islands and Western Greece in a series of unique and impressive drawings and watercolours.
The exhibition is curated by Despina Zernioti CMG, Director of the Corfu Museum of Asian Art and Professor John Camp, Director of the Agora Excavations, American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
