Young Friends of FAI Event – City of the Soul at the Morgan Library at 225 Madison Avenue

The Young Friends of FAI will enjoy an after-hours, guided tour of the “City of the Soul: Rome and the Romantics” exhibition at the Morgan Library and Museum. This groundbreaking exhibition considers the ever-evolving identities of Rome during a pivotal period in the city’s history, 1770–1870, when it was transformed from a papal state to the capital of a unified, modern nation. The exhibition juxtaposes a century of artistic impressions of Rome through a superb selection of prints and drawings by recognized masters such as Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778), J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851), and Edward Lear (1812–1888) along with lesser known artists whose work deserves greater attention. This event is open exclusively to the Young Friends of FAI.
