Hellenistic sculpture by Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and German and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Hellenistic Sculpture II: The Styles of ca. 200-100 B.C., the second of Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway's three planned volumes on Hellenistic sculpture, she takes on the challenge of interpreting and dating the art of this complex and lively century." "Ridgway attempts to determine what can be securely considered to have been produced during the second century B.C., employing the same methodology she has used in her previous studies of all phases of Greek sculpture. In the course of her exploration, she critically scrutinizes most of the best-known pieces of Greek sculpture, ultimately revealing a tentative but plausible picture of the artistic trends of 200-100 B.C."--Jacket

Prayers in stone : Greek architectural sculpture ca. 600-100 B.C.E. by Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a comprehensive treatment of the significance of Greek architectural sculpture. The meaning of architectural sculpture is essential to our understanding of ancient Greek culture. The embellishment of buildings was common for the ancient Greeks, and often provocative. Some ornamental sculpture was placed where, when the building was finished, no mortal eye could view it. And unlike much architectural ornamentation of other cultures, Greek sculpture was often integral to the building, not just as decoration, and could not be removed without affecting the integrity of the building structure. The author provides a highly informative tour of many dimensions of Greek public buildings--especially temples, tombs, and treasuries

Fourth-century styles in Greek sculpture by Brunilde Sismondo Ridgway( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ridgway pays particular attention to Greek originals, but also provides valuable chapters on Roman copies, one of the most difficult but critical areas for understanding Greek sculpture. Taking a sceptical stance, Ridgway revisits scholarly attempts to attribute sculptural work to the famous masters of the fourth century: Praxiteles, Skopas, and Lysippos. She undertakes a factual analysis of the extant evidence for and against various attributions, bolstered by a critical reading of ancient literary sources

From Pergamon to Sperlonga : sculpture and context by Langford Conference of the Department of Classics( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together the work of leading scholars on two of the most important yet puzzling extant ensembles of Hellenistic Age sculpture: the Great Altar at Pergamon, with its Gigantomachy and scenes from the life of Telephos, and the Cave at Sperlonga in Italy, with its epic themes connected especially with the adventures of Odysseus. From Pergamon to Sperlonga has three aims: to update the scholarship on two important monuments of ancient art and architecture; to debate questions of iconography, authorship, and date; and to broaden the scope of discussion on these monuments beyond the boundaries of studies done in the past. In addition, it brings forward new ideas about how these two monuments are connected and discusses possible means by which stylistic influences were transmitted between them." "The essays explore the historical and iconographic influences that produced some of the motifs and styles evident at both sites. They discuss Pergamene politics and victory dedications, suggest non-Greek antecedents and Roman developments of the Altar's scenography, and bring to bear Etruscan and Roman evidence on an analysis of the Sperlonga groups. The contributors explore and critique currently held opinions concerning these monuments and reach some novel conclusions that will demand that we take a fresh look at these famous works of art." "Together, this collection of essays is unique in that it treats difficult issues in Hellenistic, Etruscan, and Roman art and culture together in one volume, providing a stimulating and controversial look back to the Hellenistic Age."--Jacket
