The material is approached using a newly developed methodology of archaeoaesthetics by which past modes of vision and perception are examined in conjunction with prevailing notions of pleasure and judgement with the purpose of identifying the visual and psychological contexts within which the aesthetics of a culture emerge. Through a wide-ranging examination of ideas found in early written sources, the book examines various key aspects of Greek visual culture, such as continuity and change, nudity, identity, lifelikeness, mimesis, personation and enactment, symmetria, dance, harmony, and the modal representation of emotions, with the aim of comprehending how and why choices were made in the conception and making of artifacts. Special attention is given to factors contributing to the formation of taste and the emergence and transmission over time of concepts of art and beauty and the means by which they were identified and judged. The approach facilitates encounters with the material in ways that give rise to new insights into how the ancient Greeks experienced their own visual culture and how Greek art may be understood by us todayREVIEWSRoss Brendle, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 10.55 (2019)Print Publishing in Sixteenth-Century Rome: Growth and Expansion, Rivalry and Murder London/Turnhout: Harvey Miller Publishers, 2008 (469 pages, 320 illustrations) Apple Books, April 2019 (535.3MB)187 pages, 873 images, maps, and diagrams In this first volume of Art in Ancient Egypt, chapters on Egypt and the Nile; Egypt and the Natural World; Hieroglyphics; Signs and Symbols; Egyptian Religion; Gods and Goddesses; Pharaohs and Queens; Men and Women; Life and Death; and Art and Architecture provide an introduction to art and culture in Ancient Egypt.This eBook is available for downloadApple Books, May 2019 (566.6MB)135 pages, 732 images, maps, diagrams, videos, and interactive features In this second volume of Art in Ancient Egypt, the history of the art and architecture of Ancient Egypt is surveyed from Predynastic times to the end of the Roman Period.This eBook is available for downloadApple Books, January 2014 (673MB)over 500 images, videos, maps, diagrams and interactive materials An introductory survey of art in Prehistoric Europe, Ancient Egypt, Near East, Aegean, and Greece.
