David Ligare: Magna Fide (The Great Belief)

October 21, 2017 to January 7, 2018
David Ligare is an American contemporary classicist painter. Since 1978, Ligare has focused on painting still lifes, landscapes, and figures that are influenced by Greco-Roman antiquity. Chief among his stated influences are the aesthetic and philosophical theories of the Greek sculptor Polykleitos and the mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, as well as the work of the 17th-century classical painter Nicolas Poussin. This exhibition will explore Ligare’s creative process by focusing on the steps it took to create his 2014 artwork, Magna Fide.
