The Acropolis: Through its
The Acropolis through its Museum is not simply a guidebook to the Acropolis Museum. By presenting the works of art exhibited in the museum, it endeavours to resynthesize the history of the Sacred Rock as part of the cultural and the wider historical process of Athens. The book follows the visitor's tour of the museum, so that the reader can study and learn more about the antiquities he sees before him. However, it is written is such a way that through independent inquiry the reader is able to approach the subjects more deeply and to understand the preconditions - political, social, economic, ideological, artistic and technological - that led to the creation of the unique monuments on the Acropolis. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs, as well as numerous plans and reconstruction drawings, which enable the reader to understand each of the fragmentarily preserved works in its context. It also answers many of the questions raised in the discerning reader's mind, such as what was the size and the population of ancient Athens, what is the meaning of the beasts represented on the large Archaic pediments, what do the Korai statues represent, why did the Erechtheion become so complex and what was the role of the Karyatids, why was the temple of Athena Nike built in the Ioni...

Simboli e associazioni astrali nella glittica mesopotamica del Bronzo Tardo (BAR International Series) (Italian
Il II millennio a.C. in Mesopotamia è caratterizzato da un incremento delle raffigurazioni astrali, le quali assumono un ruolo importante come rappresentazione non antropomorfa di divinità e specchio di osservazioni del cielo. Il presente volume presenta un'analisi dei simboli con valore astrale nella glittica mitannica, cassita e medio-assira. Partendo da un'analisi degli elementi simbolici presenti su un corpus di 1090 sigilli e impronte di sigillo, sono stati individuati e singolarmente analizzati, contestualmente alla loro posizione nella scena, i simboli con valore astrale. Inoltre, lo studio delle relazioni fra i simboli - astrali e non astrali - ha permesso l'identificazione di alcune associazioni ricorrenti. La loro comparazione con fonti testuali (es. omina e compendi astronomici) e con la ricostruzione del cielo mesopotamico del Bronzo Tardo, ha permesso la comprensione della percezione mitannica, cassita e medio-assira della volta celeste e del suo legame con il sentire religioso e la pratica divinatoria.In Mesopotamia of the 2nd millennium BC, astral representations spread throughout art, assuming an important role as the symbolic representation of deities and the mirror of real celestial observations. The present book focuses on astral symbols as they are represent...

A Century of American Sculpture : The Roman Bronze Works Foundry(Hardback) - 2007
For over a century the majority of Americas major sculptors chose one particular foundry to cast their works in bronze. That foundry was the Roman Bronze Works and its castings (and often the initials R.B.W.) represent a vast and fascinating collection of sculptures, ranging from the monuments of French and Saint-Gaudens to the cowboys of Remington and Russell, from the grand and graceful figures of Paul Manship and the charming salon pieces of Bessie Potter Vonnoh, to the brilliant abstractions of Archipenko and Calder. To study the ledgers and archival photographs of Roman Bronze Works is to see the unfolding of American sculpture through the 20th century, for here are examples from the many schools and isms that locked the nations art world in titanic battles between realism and modernism and the many significant styles in between. Over 700 photographic examples (many in color) and biographical information about over 120 sculptors make up this book, the first to examine R.B.W.s role in American art.
