The Dying Gaul, an ancient Roman sculpture, is on display at the National Gallery of Art through March 16.
The exhibit is part of a cultural exchange in which the National Gallery has loaned Impressionist paintings that are being shown at the Museum of the Ara Pacis in Rome through February. Fittingly, the rotunda that will house “The Dying Gaul” until March 16 is itself modeled on the Pantheon in Rome.
