Sculptures by Igor Mitoraj comprise a sui generis bridge spanning over more than 25 centuries of European art. The pillars of this bridge are composed of a great triad of figures: Doryphoros by Polyclitus, designed as a demonstration of the artist’s Canon, David by Michelangelo, and Icarus by Mitoraj. In aesthetics the pillars of this edifice are philosophers representing three different epochs of reflection on art: Plato, Plotinus, Ficino and contemporary postmodernists. Three statues and three different conceptions of beauty captured in stone symbolise three epochs in the history of art: antiquity, the Renaissance, and contemporary art from the turn of the twentieth century.
