Houghton’s Emperors: Portraits and power

Thu 2 February - Sun 23 April

Fitzwilliam Museum

A Cambridge viewing for two impressive marble busts of Roman Emperors Commodus and Septimius Severus. For a short time this winter enjoy them in the Museum, with an encircling display evoking both their ancient and their 18th century contexts, and the enduring power of portraits.

These sculptures were recently allocated to the Fitzwilliam Museum through the Houghton Settlement by Arts Council England in lieu of inheritance tax; normally they remain in situ at Houghton Hall.

Cost: Free
