The Aphrodite Of Knidos And Her Successors

by Christine Mitchell Havelock, The Aphrodite Of Knidos And Her Successors Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Aphrodite Of Knidos And Her Successors book, Christine Mitchell Havelock's book takes a much- needed new look at some of the most famous icons of Western art: the nude statues that the Greeks produced to represent Aphrodite. The Aphrodite of Knidos, by master sculptor Praxiteles, is the leading example of this form. Other statues include the Capitoline and Medici Venuses, the Crouching Aphrodite and the Aphrodite of Melos--all of them indebted to Praxiteles. The author analyzes the meaning of the pose of the Aphrodite of Knidos, the significance of her nudity, and her architectural setting. A survey of the statue's reception and interpretation in Greek, Roman, and modern times offers an entirely new perspective on this major work of art. Among topics examined are Praxiteles' reported use of his mistress Phryne as his model, the "pudica gesture," and the importance of small-scale versions of statues for dating the larger sculptures. The author also considers the function and religious significance of the small statues, and she includes the cultural context offered by the erotic poetry of Propertius and Ovid, two Roman poets who were fascinated by the robing and disrobing of their mistresses. The Aphrodite of Knidos is a highly readable, broad-based volume of interest to anyone familiar with classical art and the ancient world. Christine Mitchell Havelock is Professor Emerita of Art History and Curator of the Classical Art Collection at Vassar College. She has written and lectured widely on Greek art.

Philostrats Apollonios Und Seine Welt

by Balbina Bäbler, Philostrats Apollonios Und Seine Welt Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Philostrats Apollonios Und Seine Welt book, Ein ausführlicher Kommentar zu Philostrats Lebensbeschreibung des Philosophen Apollonios ist immer noch ein Desiderat. Dieses Buch macht damit einen ersten Anfang, indem es eine Reihe von Partien in einer neuen zweisprachigen Ausgabe präsentiert und sie durch Essays erläutert, die die eigenartige, aber literarisch sehr attraktive Mischung von Fakten und Fiktion in diesen Partien herausarbeiten. Ausgewählt wurden diese Partien nach folgenden Gesichtspunkten: Mit seinem Apollonios hat Philostrat einen philosophischen Helden geschaffen, der auf seinen Reisen nach Osten, Westen und Süden an die Grenzen der bekannten Welt gelangt. Dabei trifft Griechisches auf Nichtgriechisches: der Grieche Apollonios auf indische und äthiopische Philosophen, deren Göttervorstellungen er nicht immer teilt, aber auch auf Griechen, deren Umgang mit Götterstatuen er höchst tadelnswert findet. Die daraus entstehenden – und von Philostrat geschilderten – Diskussionen sind auch heute noch wert, gelesen zu werden, da sie ein vielfältiges und lebendiges Bild von den Auffassungen der gebildeten Elite der römischen Kaiserzeit zu diesen Fragen von Kunst und Religion vermitteln.

Decoration And Display In Rome S Imperial Thermae

by Maryl B. Gensheimer, Decoration And Display In Rome S Imperial Thermae Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Decoration And Display In Rome S Imperial Thermae book, Across the Roman Empire, ubiquitous archaeological, art historical, and literary evidence attests to the significance of bathing for Romans' routines and relationships. Public baths were popularly viewed as necessities of daily life and important social venues. Given the importance of bathing to the Roman style of living, by endowing eight magnificent baths (the so-called imperial thermae) in the city of Rome between 25 BCE - 315 CE, imperial patrons greatly enhanced their popular and political stature. Decoration and Display in Rome's Imperial Thermae presents a detailed analysis of the extensive decoration of the best preserved of these bathing complexes, the Baths of Caracalla (inaugurated 216 CE). Maryl B. Gensheimer takes an interdisciplinary approach to existing archaeological data, textual and visual sources, and anthropological theories in order to generate a new understanding of the visual experience of the Baths of Caracalla and show how the decoration played a critical role in advancing imperial agendas. This reassessment of one of the most ambitious and sophisticated examples of large-scale architectural patronage in Classical antiquity examines the specific mechanisms through which an imperial patron could use architectural decoration to emphasize his own unique sociopolitical position relative to the thousands of people who enjoyed his benefaction. The case studies addressed herein--ranging from architectural to freestanding sculpture and mosaic--demonstrate that sponsoring monumental baths was hardly an act of altruism. Rather, even while they provided recreation for elite and sub-altern Romans alike, such buildings were concerned primarily with dynastic legitimacy and imperial largess. Decorative programs articulated these themes by consistently drawing analogies between the subjects of the decoration and the emperor who had paid for it. The unified decorative program--and the messages of imperial power therein--adroitly honored the emperor and consolidated his reputation.

Figur Ohne Raum

by Nikolaus Dietrich, Figur Ohne Raum Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Figur Ohne Raum book, Nikolaus Dietrich presents a general model for the understanding of space in Greek paintings, based on an analysis of landscape elements in Attic vase painting of the 6th and 5th centuries BC. Our concept of space in landscapes proves to be completely unsuitable for understanding these motifs. Space in Greek paintings is not an earlier stage in the development of the concept we have employed since the Renaissance, but a completely different one, and a clear indication of the cultural relativity of our way of seeing things.

Shoes Slippers And Sandals

by Sadie Pickup, Shoes Slippers And Sandals Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Shoes Slippers And Sandals book, This edited volume groups research on the significance of ancient feet and footwear, much of which was presented, discussed and reviewed at the conference: Shoes, Slippers and Sandals: Feet and Footwear in Antiquity, held at Newcastle University and the Great North Museum from 29 June–1 July 2015. Ancient dress and adornment have received significant consideration in recent scholarship, though, strikingly, feet and footwear have featured relatively little in this discussion. This volume aims to rectify this imbalance through its fifteen chapters covering a wide range of aspects associated with feet and footwear in classical antiquity. Contributions are grouped under four headings: ‘Envisaging footwear’, ‘Following footprints’, ‘One from a pair’ and ‘Between representation and reality’, reflecting the broad range and interdisciplinary nature of the approaches undertaken.

Schelling Und Die Bildende Kunst

by Arne Zerbst, Schelling Und Die Bildende Kunst Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Schelling Und Die Bildende Kunst book, Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schellings Kunstphilosophie stellt innerhalb der Geschichte der Ästhetik den ersten Versuch dar, eine wechselseitige Durchdringung philosophischer Systematik und kunsthistorischer Darstellung zu vollziehen. Diese herausgehobene Position erwächst aus Schellings prinzipieller Hochschätzung der Kunst. Erst aus dem Gedanken der hierarchischen Gleichsetzung von Philosophie und Kunst kann ein Werk der Kunstphilosophie erwachsen, welches in sich selbst diese Gleichheit umzusetzen willens und in der Lage ist. Die Gleichberechtigung von Philosophie und Kunst nimmt folglich auch die vorliegende Untersuchung in die interdisziplinäre Pflicht, dem die Ästhetik grundsätzlich bestimmenden Verhältnis von konkreter Werkkenntnis und philosophischer Systematik am Beispiel Schellings nachzuspüren.

A Cultural History Of Dress And Fashion In Antiquity

by Mary Harlow, A Cultural History Of Dress And Fashion In Antiquity Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download A Cultural History Of Dress And Fashion In Antiquity book, Whilst seemingly simple garments such as the tunic remained staples of the classical wardrobe, sources from the period reveal a rich variety of changing styles and attitudes to clothing across the ancient world. Covering the period 500 BCE to 800 CE and drawing on sources ranging from extant garments and architectural iconography to official edicts and literature, this volume reveals Antiquity's preoccupation with dress, which was matched by an appreciation of the processes of production rarely seen in later periods. From a courtesan's sheer faux-silk garb to the sumptuous purple dyes of an emperor's finery, clothing was as much a marker of status and personal expression as it was a site of social control and anxiety. Contemporary commentators expressed alarm in equal measure at the over-dressed, the excessively ascetic or at 'barbarian' silhouettes. Richly illustrated with 100 images, A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion in Antiquity presents an overview of the period with essays on textiles, production and distribution, the body, belief, gender and sexuality, status, ethnicity, visual representations, and literary representations.

Aphrodite

by Monica S. Cyrino, Aphrodite Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Aphrodite book, Aphrodite explores the many myths and meanings of the Greek goddess of love, sex and beauty. One of the most widely worshipped and popular deities in Greek antiquity, Aphrodite emerges from the imaginations of the ancient Greek writers and artists as a multifaceted, powerful and charismatic figure. This volume explores the importance of Aphrodite for the ancient Greeks, as well as her enduring influence as a symbol of beauty, adornment, love and sexuality in contemporary culture. In a wide-ranging investigation of the universality of Aphrodite’s power and significance, this volume illuminates the numerous intricate levels of divinity embodied by the alluring figure of Aphrodite. Aphrodite offers new insights into the ancient texts and artistic representations of the goddess, as well as a comprehensive survey of the current scholarship about the origins and interpretations of Aphrodite, whilst also highlighting her eternal popular appeal across cultures and generations. A goddess of love who is not afraid to enter the battlefield; a goddess of bodily adornment who is the first to appear totally nude; a goddess born of the sea who emerges into the open sky: Aphrodite is a polyvalent deity, plural in nature, function and significance.

Frederic Leighton

by KerenRosa Hammerschlag, Frederic Leighton Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Frederic Leighton book, Keren Rosa Hammerschlag's Frederic Leighton: Death, Mortality, Resurrection offers a timely reexamination of the art of the late Victorian period's most institutionally powerful artist, Frederic Lord Leighton (1830-1896). As President of the Royal Academy from 1878 to 1896, Leighton was committed to the pursuit of beauty in art through the depiction of classical subjects, executed according to an academic working-method. But as this book reveals, Leighton's art and discourse were beset by the realisation that academic art would likely die with him. Rather than achieving classical perfection, Hammerschlag argues, Leighton's figures hover in transitional states between realism and idealism, flesh and marble, life and death, as gothic distortions of the classical ideal. The author undertakes close readings of key paintings, sculptures, frescos and drawings in Leighton's oeuvre, and situates them in the context of contemporaneous debates about death and resurrection in theology, archaeology and medicine. The outcome is a pleasurably macabre counter-biography that reconfigures what it meant to be not just a late-Victorian neoclassicist and royal academician, but President of the Victorian Royal Academy.
