Artists have explored mythological themes for centuries, creating not only some of the world’s best-known masterpieces but also a means to pass down such stories over generations.

To explore the evolution of mythology in art, this exhibition brings together a selection of paintings, prints and sculptures, on loan from the National Museums Liverpool group in the United Kingdom and from museums in Japan.

Featured artists include Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Jean-Francois Millet and other 19th-century Royal Academy artists, with later highlights including “Flora” (1914) by John William Waterhouse.
