Early Hellenistic Portraiture : Image, Style, Context Hardback
Examines the styles and contexts of portrait statues produced during one of the most dynamic eras of Western art, the early Hellenistic age.
Often seen as the beginning of the Western tradition in portraiture, this historical period is here subjected to a rigorous interdisciplinary analysis.
Using a variety of methodologies from a wide range of fields - anthropology, numismatics, epigraphy, archaeology, history, and literary criticism - an international team of experts investigates the problems of origins, patronage, setting, and meanings that have consistently marked this fascinating body of ancient material culture.
