"This catalogue presents nearly a thousand of the British Museum's extensive collection of ancient Greek terracottas." "An introduction outlines general questions of the evolution of artistic styles, techniques and functions of Hellenistic terracottas. In the main catalogue the figures are grouped into seven major geographic areas according to their known or probable place of production, and further subdivided as appropriate. The introduction to each section discusses findspots, acquisition history and general characteristics of the particular production area. Each individual piece is then fully described and discussed." "The black and white plates illustrate every example, while the colour plates offer a representative selection of the range of clays found in the terracottas published here and also of the coloured pigments used in their decoration."--Jacket

Mythes grecs by Lucilla Burn( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On trouvera dans ce livre quelques-uns des plus captivants de tous les mythes grecs : l'affrontement épique de la guerre de Troie, la longue errance d'Ulysse, le tragique destin d'Œdipe et les aventures héroïques d'Héraklès, de Thésée, de Persée et de Jason. L'auteur présente d'abord le panthéon complexe des dieux et des déesses de l'Olympe ; elle rappelle leurs attributs, leur généalogie, les épisodes souvent comiques qui émaillent leurs relations. Elle évoque ensuite l'histoire de ces dieux et déesse, héros et héroïnes en prenant appui sur l'environnement artistique et culturel du monde antique qui les a créés. Le dernier chapitre fait l'inventaire du riche héritage imaginaire du mythe grec, dont la puissance ne s'est pas démentie de Botticelli à Sigmund Freud. -- 4ème de couverture

A history of the Fitzwilliam Museum 1816-2016 by Lucilla Burn( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fitzwilliam Museum is not just the principal museum of the University of Cambridge but also one of the leading UK museums outside London. This book traces its story from the Museum’s origins in the 1816 bequest of Richard, 7th Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion, up to the present day. At the same time it sets the Fitzwilliam’s individual story against the larger context of the growth and development of museums and galleries in the UK and further afield.The text and illustrations draw primarily on the rich and hitherto largely unpublished archives of the Fitzwilliam Museum, including the Syndicate Minutes,the reports of University debates published in the Cambridge University Reporter from 1870 on wards, compilations of earlier nineteenth-century documents,architectural plans and drawings, newspaper reports, letters, diaries, exhibition catalogues, photographs and other miscellaneous documents. With this material a substantial proportion of the narrative can be told through contemporary voices, not least those of the Museum’s thirteen Directors to date, each one a strong and influential character
