Sculptors and physicians in fifth-century Greece : a preliminary study by Guy P. R Métraux( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the early classical period Greek sculpture changed radically, becoming much more lifelike. At the same time physicians such as Hippocrates developed new ideas about human life and health, and philosophers rethought their attitudes about nature. Sculptors and Physicians in Fifth-Century Greece is an investigation of the interplay of sculptors, physicians, and philosophers at a time crucial to the development of classical art." "Exploring this interplay, Guy Metraux shows how the depiction of physiological processes gave statues and reliefs their animating force and how many medical and philosophical speculations about the body were derived from depictions in art. He examines works such as the Omphalos Apollo, the relief of the Girl with Doves from Paros, and the two recently discovered bronze warriors from Riace, paying particular attention to developments in the depiction of breathing, blood vessels, and facial expression, to attempts to show actual or potential motion, and to the invention of contrapposto (asymmetry of stance)."--Jacket

The Roman villa in the Mediterranean basin : late republic to late antiquity by Annalisa Marzano( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The expansion and proliferation of villas into the Mediterranean under Roman hegemony is the topic of this volume. In addition, the historical trajectory of the villa as a formula and phenomenon is outlined for different parts of the empire. Villas - extra-urban, suburban, or seaside country houses, many with productive estates or facilities contiguous or non-adjacent to them, others purely residential - were unmistakable signs of Roman social and economic presence. Roman villas expanded into Italy and the coasts and inland areas of the mare nostrum (and ultimately into the northwestern provinces of the empire) along with other agricultural, physical, institutional, and socio-cultural phenomena of the new hegemony. There were exceptions, most notably in the eastern empire where a widespread residential tradition and culture on agricultural estates did not develop. However, villas were signs of Roman economic organization and signifiers of Roman cultural presence in annexed lands and coastlines, and they became both normal and normalizing by the late-2nd century BCE in central and southern Italy and a little later in the northern peninsula. Elsewhere, landscapes readily receptive to the implantation of villas and their proliferation in the imperial period further assured Roman presence in terms of architecture, agricultural practices, decorative expectations, and social mores throughout the Mediterranean"--

The Roman villa in the Mediterranean basin : late republic to late antiquity( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a comprehensive survey of Roman villas in Italy and the Mediterranean provinces of the Roman Empire, from their origins to the collapse of the Empire. The architecture of villas could be humble or grand, and sometimes luxurious. Villas were most often farms where wine, olive oil, cereals, and manufactured goods, among other products, were produced. They were also venues for hospitality, conversation, and thinking on pagan, and ultimately Christian, themes. Villas spread as the Empire grew. Like towns and cities, they became the means of power and assimilation, just as infrastructure, such as aqueducts and bridges, was transforming the Mediterranean into a Roman sea. The distinctive Roman/Italian villa type was transferred to the provinces, resulting in Mediterranean-wide culture of rural dwelling and work that further unified the Empire
