The English poet John Keats loved Greek ideals of beauty. So much in fact, that in 1819 he penned his famous poem Ode on a Grecian Urn based on objects he had seen at the British Museum. Now some of those same objects—part of one of the largest and most valuable collections of Greek and Roman sculpture in the world—are making a rare trip abroad. If you’ve always wanted to write your own ode, or if you just like to see sculptural masterworks and ancient Hellenic pottery, now’s your chance.
