Topics to be explored include the iconography of Bellerophon and the Chimaera in Greece, south Italy, and Etruria; the archaeological context of the Chimaera and its role in Etruscan religion; technology and conservation history; and the sculpture's reception in Renaissance Florence.
The colloquium takes place Friday and Saturday, December 4 and 5, 2009, at the Getty Villa.
