Hercules: Renaissance Hero

Saturday, Jul 27, 2013 11:00a to 5:00p
Cantor Arts Center Stanford, CA

With images by Albrecht Durer, Hendrick Golzius, and 12 of their contemporaries, this exhibition illustrates how Renaissance artists imagined Hercules, a mythical Greek demigod endowed with exceptional strength. The 26 prints and drawings on view show him in both guises by which he was then known: as a hero performing extraordinary feats and and as an exemplar of virtue, a role he was given by humanists who viewed his deeds allegorically
