I would also heartily recommend the exhibition catalog - it's a fantastic work, combining essays from archaeologists, historians, curators, et al, about each piece in this show. Fantastic photographs, too.
Indeed, Stephen. The catalogue is highly recommendable for all audiences, academic, professional and the simply curious. By the way, some of its articles can be found on this very site thanks to the generous support of the publisher, the Musée Royal Mariemont.
I’d be grateful for some advice as I’m hoping to visit the exhibition in Frankfurt. Has anyone else on this site been there? I’ve looked on the museum’s website but cannot establish if I need to get tickets in advance. It’s a long journey from the UK if I discover I needed to book beforehand! Many thanks for any help.
I agree with the comments about the catalogue. It’s outstanding! Ordered two copies from the Mariemont museum and they arrived quickly.
