Aristocratic Taste: Ancient Art from the Belfer Collection

June 2, 2015-November 21, 2015

Location: Temporary Exhibition Gallery, Samuel and Saidye Bronfman, Archaeology Wing

Curator: Sylvia Rozenberg, Natasha Katsenenlson

A promised gift to the Museum in honor of its 50th anniversary, this major collection of more than 300
ancient Roman and Near-Eastern artifacts was previously kept in Robert and Renée Belfer’s home in New York
and has never been displayed to the public. Showcasing highlights from the collection – including exquisite glass vessels, pottery, sculptures, and mosaics – the exhibition offers a glimpse into the life of ancient Roman nobles, whose sumptuous villas were adorned with treasures such as these.
