“Hygeia-Health, Illness and Treatment
from Homer to Galen”
The Museum of Cycladic Art is dedicated to the study and promotion of ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with special emphasis on Cycladic Art of the 3rd millennium BC. It was founded in 1986 to house the collection of Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris. Since then it has grown in size to accommodate new acquisitions, obtained either through direct purchases or donations by important collectors and institutions.
In November 2013, Professor Nicholas Stampolidis, Director of the Museum of Cycladic Art, and Yorgos Tassoulas, Curator of Antiquities, gave a lecture at Harvard University on “Hygeia—Health, Illness and Treatment from Homer to Galen.” Fondation Santé acted as the host of the lecture at Harvard Medical School and provided partial financial support for the event.
