Italy Lends “Lion Attacking a Horse” to Getty

Italy is making another major antiquity loan to the Getty Villa. The recently conserved Hellenistic marble Lion Attacking a Horse, from the Capitoline Museums, Rome, will be on display in Malibu from August 12, 2012, through February 4, 2013. The violent subject inspired Renaissance bronzes and George Stubbs‘¬†echt-romantic paintings.
