An Eye for Antiquity: Photographs from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. William Knight Zewadski
January 20–March 13, 1994
Organized by the Tampa Museum of Art, this exhibition explored photographers' fascination with the enduring remains of the classical past.
With over eighty works by major nineteenth- and twentieth-century American and European photographers drawn from the Mr. and Mrs. William Knight Zewadski collection of classical themes, An Eye for Antiquity spanned the history of photography from the daguerreotype to the contemporary color print.
Photographs by James Anderson, Brassai, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Evelyn Hofer, Robert McPherson, Edward Steichen, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Ruth Thorne-Thomsen examined issues of artistic inspiration in photography and our relationship to antiquity.
