Supports in Roman marble sculpture : workshop practice and modes of viewing by Anna Anguissola( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Figural and non-figural supports are a ubiquitous feature of Roman marble sculpture; they appear in sculptures ranging in size from miniature to colossal and of all levels of quality. At odds with modern ideas about beauty, completeness, and visual congruence, these elements, especially non-figural struts, have been dismissed by scholars as mere safeguards for production and transport. However, close examination of these features reveals the tastes and expectations of those who commissioned, bought, and displayed marble sculptures throughout the Mediterranean in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Drawing on a large body of examples, Greek and Latin literary sources, and modern theories of visual culture, this study constitutes the first comprehensive investigation of non-figural supports in Roman sculpture"--
Serial / portable classic : the Greek canon and its mutations by Italy) Fondazione Prada (Milan( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and Italian and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition 'Serial Classic', open in Milan from 9 May to 24 August 2015 (preview days: 2-8 May), focuses on classical sculpture and explores the ambivalent relationship between originality and imitation in Roman culture and its insistence on the circulation of multiples as an homage to Greek art. We tend to associate the idea of classical to that of uniqueness, but in no other period of western art history the creation of copies from great masterpieces of the past has been as important as in late Republican Rome and throughout the Imperial age. The exhibition comprises more than 70 artworks and opens with an in-depth analysis of lost originals and their multiple copies, represented by two particularly renowned series such as the Discobolus and the Crouching Venus. Two other important sections are devoted to the materials and the colours of classical bronzes and marbles. The Kassel Apollo, for instance, is presented in two recent plaster casts which reproduce the original bronze surface of the lost Greek original and the colours of its Roman marble copies. Another area in the exhibition illustrates the technologies and methods used in the making of the copies, presenting two essential moments such as the creation of the plaster cast and the translation of proportions and measurements on the new block of marble. Two famous series are also featured in the exhibition, the Penelope, and the Caryatides, on the prototype of the Athenian originals from the Erechtheion.00Exhibition: Ca'Corner della Regina, Venice, Italy (09.05-13.09.2015). / Fondazione Prada, Milan, Italy (09.05. - 24.08.2015)

Privata Luxuria : towards an archaeology of intimacy : Pompeii and beyond : International Workshop Center for Advanced Studies, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (24-25 March 2011)( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Privacy is a widely debated concept today, and a paramount concern for modern societies: the ideas and prerogatives that it encapsulates are considered, nowadays, to be essential human rights and key issues when defining the mutual relationship between the individual and society at large. In order to investigate the boundaries and nuances of privacy in the Roman society, the city of Pompeii provides a rare case in point, due to the extraordinary concentration and readability of contextual archaeological data. The aim of this volume which originated from an International Workshop held at the Center for Advanced Studies of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, is to contribute to a better knowledge of the domestic space in Pompeii and other cities of the Roman world as mirrored by the interplay between individual and social spaces. To this purpose, a small group of researchers from a variety of backgrounds and traditions have been invited to contribute papers on different aspects of privacy, emphasizing diversity in methodologies and approaches

Amori divini : miti greci di amore e trasformazione( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A partire dal mirabile opus magnum di Ovidio, fino alle più contemporanee interpretazioni della psicologia, i miti greci e in particolare i miti greci della metamorfosi sono stati tra i temi più affascinanti e generativi di pensiero della storia. Non solo le scienze umane e la letteratura ma anche e soprattutto l'arte, dall'antico al contemporaneo, ha subìto il fascino di Dafne, Narciso, Eco, Ermafrodito e ne ha dato rappresentazioni che sono entrate nell'immaginario collettivo. Il volume esplora il tema proponendo le storie dei miti e le differenti tipologie di trasformazione, attraverso testi di studiosi corredati da un ricco apparato iconografico di opere antiche e moderne in dialogo costante.00Exhibition: Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Naples, Italy (07.06.-16.10.2017)
