L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, originally founded in 1648, is the distinguished National School of Fine Arts that has trained many great European artists, such as Renoir, Degas, Sisley and Seurat.

Drawing from the school's extensive classic art collections, this travelling exhibit focuses on epic themes of death, courage and sacrifice among the varied political and historical backdrops. Close to 140 pieces dating from the 17th to 19th centuries are part of this exhibit. They include paintings, sculptures and works on paper by such significant artists as Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Leonardo da Vinci, Nicolas Poussin, Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt van Rijn.

With an ideology rooted in the study of the idealized human form, l’École des Beaux-Arts set the highest standards and fostered the development of magnificent achievements in western art. Biblical themes, as well as the deeds of gods and heroes as told by Homer, served as primary narratives in constructing powerful paintings that carefully delineated anatomy, facial expression, landscape and architectural setting.

Among the masterworks on exhibit are Fragonard’s Jeroboam Offering Sacrifice for the Idol (1752), Jacques-Louis David’s Erasistratus Discovers the Cause of Antiochus’ Disease (1774); and Ingres’s Achilles Receiving the Ambassadors of Agamemnon (1801).
