For more than 400 years, architectural ruins have been portrayed in art to remind us about the power of nature and time and the parallel fragility of human life and civilization. Organized as part of the 2018 Big Read project, The Lure of Ruins includes ten works of art ranging in date from the early 18th century to the early 21st century that illustrate different historical approaches to the depiction of ruins in art.
