An exhibition of photographic portraits of female scientists and artists.

Jan Adam Kruseman, The Great Belzoni

The celebrated Mr Belzoni: A cultural gift to the Fitzwilliam

Tue 23 July 2019 - Sun 10 November 2019

Fitzwilliam Museum

This in-focus exhibition is centred on a new acquisition: Jan Adam Kruseman’s posthumous portrait of the celebrated adventurer, Giovanni Battista Belzoni, known as ‘The Great Belzoni’. Painted in 1824, it was accepted under the Cultural Gifts Scheme by HM Government from Daniel Katz Ltd. and presented to the Museum in 2018 (in honour of ex?Director, Tim Knox). The portrait is displayed alongside paintings and watercolours from the Fitzwilliam’s wider collections, which reflect the allure of Egypt and Egyptian antiquities to British artists of the 19th century. Part of the exhibition focuses on the remarkable character of Belzoni, his commercial interest in ancient Egypt, and his extraordinary gift to the Fitzwilliam in 1823 of the sarcophagus lid of Ramesses III.
