Last Days of the Dying Gaul at the National Gallery of Art

| March 16, 2014

Hundreds of visitors at the National Gallery got their last peek at the Dying Gaul this weekend.

Created in the first or second century AD, the Dying Gaul is one of the most renowned works from antiquity. This exhibition marked the first time it has left Italy since 1797, when Napoleonic forces took the sculpture to Paris, where it was displayed at the Louvre until its return to Rome in 1816. A universally recognized masterpiece, the Dying Gaul is a deeply moving celebration of the human spirit.
