Stories, Ideals, Beliefs
Works of art often convey ideas about who we are and what we believe. The Stories, Ideals, Beliefs gallery includes paintings and sculptures from a wide range of periods and places, from antiquity to the contemporary moment, from across five continents. The groupings encourage comparisons across eras and cultures, and invite viewers to consider how works of art may express transformative moments related to religious or literary narratives and how they present ideal notions of humanity.
