Description
Controversially removed from the Parthenon in Athens and shipped to London in 1806, the Elgin Marbles are among the great treasures of antiquity. These works are the subject of three essays by the British polymath William Hazlitt (1778–1830), who found in them an ideal example of his own theories on the purpose and possibilities of art. Four of Hazlitt's other essays on the visual arts—brilliantly connecting the vitality of painting with that of sculpture and writing prose—also appear here, including his lyrical tribute to the paintings of Nicolas Poussin.
