Petit Futé's opinion on MUSEUM OF CYCLADIC ART: THE TAR COLLECTION

Vintage plate 2020

On the ground floor you will find explanatory texts on the Cycladic civilization in the 3rd millennium BC and maps preparing the visitor to understand this civilization.

On the first floor, the Cycladic collection is organized chronologically to allow the visitor to understand the evolution of the art from ancient to recent Cycladic through the middle Cycladic. You will note the appearance of idols with crossed arms as well as beautiful moving figures, which is quite unusual in the art of this civilization. Finally, note the huge idol in the third section (1.40 m).
On thesecond floor, the first section features Bronze Age ceramics, the second section houses more recent objects from the geometric period, such as a gigantic amphora and some very beautiful gold jewellery. The third section shows archaic objects such as Boeotian terracotta. The fourth section shows black-figure vases and two beautiful bronze hydria (vases with three handles). The fifth section opens with red-figure ceramics, but it is especially noteworthy the superb Attic crater in the centre of the room, decorated with a return from a banquet.
The3rd floor is reserved for temporary exhibitions.
On the4th floor there is a beautiful Mycenaean sarcophagus with painted decoration and a collection of bronze helmets, swords and strigiles. Finally, note the small kouros from Cyprus.

Ne manquez en aucun cas la visite de ce musée extraordinaire, en particulier de son premier étage, tout entier consacré à des trésors de l'art cycladique. Les sculptures sont d'une modernité étonnante et leur pureté traverse sans peine les nombreux siècles qui nous séparent d'elles.
