He works on the intersection of aesthetics, archaeology, and art history, with particular emphasis on Classical Greek and neo-Classical French art. At the beginning of each chapter there is a timeline and at the conclusion a textbox in which various scholarly issues are discussed. Summary: This survey combines a chronological narrative with an up-to-date account of Greek art and archaeology.Each of the following chapters is chronological, with titles such as “The Julio-Claudians, 14-68 CE: The Rise of Roman Dynastic Art” (6) and “Civil War and Severan Dynasty, 193-235 CE: Calm before the Storm” (10). Recent work has plausibly established that the parapet was installed around the same time as the temple, in the mid to later 420s.

Drawing on literary, historical and archaeological evidence, Nigel Spivey explains the techniques of the manufacture of Greek sculpture and traces its production from the eighth century BC to the Hellenistic period. In 2015, Wiley Blackwell took the unprecedented step of simultaneously publishing surveys of Greek and Roman art and architecture, written by respected scholars and meant to be companion texts. Spanning Athenian life from the Mycenaean to the Byzantine eras, the 500 objects featured range from statues, pottery, and jewelry to tools, toys, a dog collar, and a large stone slab listing the dead from three battles of the Peloponnesian War, mentioned by Thucydides. Each chapter begins with a chronology and map, situating the reader in time and place as we follow the development of an ancient visual culture that still influences us today.

He does not ignore formal development but always relates this to social and cultural history, which it reflected and from which it grew. This fresh and lively approach gives the subject a relevance and breath that puts it in a league of its own. Students will gain skills in analysing artefacts and built environments and learn to connect these to critical historical narratives of ancient Greece. The organization of the material is essentially the same: each chapter begins with a general historical overview of the period; provides a summary of important artistic trends; discusses the portraiture of empresses and emperors; and finally concludes with the public architecture of the period, including historical reliefs.

Stansbury-O’Donnell’s strength lies in his acumen in formally analyzing the style and iconography of a Greek work of art; Tuck’s is in his ability to interpret Roman monuments as visual expressions of imperial values; and Plantzos’ in presenting key monuments with a view to their archaeological history. Perhaps the woman buried in the Agora tomb died before marriage, Stansbury-O’Donnell posits, in spite of her having reached maturity.sanctuaries and architecture”; in addition, there are two other thematic chapters, on “narrative” and “identity. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. To comprehend why Greek sculpture looks as it does we have to recreate the conditions of its production and consider those who commissioned, used and viewed it as much as the sculptors whom we traditionally associate with its creation. Consequently, this excellent book achieves the difficult goals of an introductory text more successfully than its competitors. The author is particularly strong in the area of painting, viewing painted pottery as “the connective tissue in the study of Greek art” (p.

They all relate to the theme of sport, most have a religious rather than secular significance and they all stand as rare examples of their kind. The material is presented in a way which makes this important evidence available to students who are not specialists in the Classical languages or Classical archaeology. The book presents a historical interpretation of Greek art and archaeology within a chronological framework, and balances different methodologies to present a well-rounded picture. In addition, each chapter includes three or four explanatory “boxes” that deal with a variety of issues, such as techniques of production, issues of marketing and consumption, and special cases of iconography or historical context.Nonetheless, I do include a few suggestions for corrections or adjustments that easily can be worked into a future edition of the text. No mere survey, this important new text goes out of its way to problematize traditional narratives and point to the hidden riches and complexities of the field. The book contains nearly five hundred illustrations (with over four hundred in colour), including specially commissioned photographs, maps, floorplans and reconstructions. Richard Neer s clear chronological narrative takes readers through the artistic developments in Greek culture from the Minoans to the Roman conquest.
