From Chaos to Order: Greek Geometric Art from the Sol Rabin Collection is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the aesthetics of Greek Geometric art and to demonstrate that stylistic principles in visual art during the Geometric period reflect a characteristically Greek idea of “the beautiful” (kallos). A new visual vocabulary developed during this period–one that stressed clarity, balance, and symmetry. These design principles may appear contemporary, yet they provided the foundation for all subsequent Greek art. This collection and exhibition re-examines the contributions and innovations of Geometric art and its enduring legacy throughout classical antiquity.

From Chaos to Order: Greek Geometric Art from the Sol Rabin Collection is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg.
