‘Timeless Beauty’ opens in the Gallo-Roman Museum on 17 December 2016. The central theme is the conception of ideal feminine beauty in Roman times. The wide-ranging body of work of the art photographer Marc Lagrange has been drawn upon to give visual tension to the exhibition. His photographs engage in a dialogue with 2.000-year-old texts by authors who were enthralled by feminine beauty. The collection of authentic objects is indicative of the kinds of resources and techniques elite Roman women relied upon to enhance their physical attraction. The exhibition’s contemporary relevance is underscored by short films featuring present-day women offering intimate accounts of how they perceive their bodies.
