Presented by the Getty Institute, Los Angeles  (2017)

The Getty Research Institute’s first online exhibition, The Legacy of Ancient Palmyra highlights the GRI’s rare print and photograph collections documenting an important archeological site that has recently undergone devastating changes amid an ongoing war in Syria.

The Legacy of Ancient Palmyra features more than 100 images and it uses a late-18th century site plan to provide to provide an interactive entry into the main gallery, followed by thematic sections which illuminate Palmyra’s ancient history and ruins within the context of the site’s rediscovery by the West.
