Greek mythology is full of exciting stories of immense bravery and heroic characters, making it an ideal source of subject matter for artists. The ancient Greek vase painter Euphronios, for example, tended to depict mythological scenes, one of which — “Krater of Antaeus” a vase portraying the battle of Heracles with Antaios the giant — is the highlight of this show.

In collaboration with the Louvre Museum, this exhibition uses multimedia to enhance the meticulous detail of such antiques from ancient Greece, giving visitors a rare insight to the works; Feb. 1-Sep. 1.
