      Heaven on Earth:Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections to Premiere at
      National Gallery of Art
      Written by Maria A. Karamitsos

      WASHINGTON, DC―In the first exhibition devoted to Byzantine art at the
      National Gallery of Art, Washington, some 170 rare and important works,
      drawn exclusively from Greek collections, will offer a fascinating
      glimpse of the soul and splendor of the mysterious Byzantine Empire. On
      view in the West Building from October 6, 2013, through March 2, 2014,
      Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections will trace the
      development of Byzantine visual culture from the fourth to the 15th
      century, beginning with the ancient pagan world of the late Roman Empire
      and continuing to the opulent and deeply spiritual world of the new
      Christian Byzantine Empire.
