This ground-breaking exhibition, a collaboration between the Royal Academy of Arts and the Benaki Museum in Athens, provides a grand-scale survey of 1,000 years of history. Highlighting the splendours of the Byzantine Empire, ‘Byzantium 330–1453’ incorporates over 300 objects. Some of the works have never been displayed in public before.
