This book examines how interpretation and examination of Greek sculpture are intertwined.

Autorentext

A. A. Donohue is Rhys Carpenter Professor of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology at Bryn Mawr College.



Klappentext

This book explores the role of description in the interpretation of ancient Greek statuary. Although scholars have emphasized the importance of separating objective evaluation of evidence from interpretation, in practice it has proved difficult to draw this distinction. This study examines the scholarship on a select number of well-known Greek statues from the eighteenth-century through the present. The impact of the historical, cultural, and intellectual contexts that produced this specialized scholarship is demonstrated through considerations of issues such as ethnicity, psychology, theories about artistic form, and evolving conceptions of nude and clothed figures.
