Ancient Luxury and the Roman Silver Treasure from Berthouville

November 19, 2014–August 17, 2015

Accidentally discovered by a French farmer in 1830, the spectacular hoard of gilt-silver statuettes and vessels will be shown at the Getty Villa from November 19, 2014 to August 17, 2015.

The opulent cache is presented in its entirety for the first time outside Paris, together with precious gems, jewelry, and other Roman luxury objects from the royal collections of the Cabinet des Médailles at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. 

This exhibition was organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum in collaboration with the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Département des monnaies, médailles et antiques, Paris. Generous support was provided by the Getty Museum’s Villa Council. 

The Berthouville Treasure will travel to San Francisco, Kansas City, Boston and Houston after its presentation in Los Angeles.
