Preface by Muccia Prada
In no other period of Western art history was the creation of copies from great masterpieces of the past as important as in late Republican Rome and throughout the Imperial Age. Certain Greek and Roman sculptures were established as canonical; their prestige was so high and their acquisition so difficult that reproductions—even on a small, portable scale— became sought-after commodities among the well-read populace of ancient Rome and modern Europe. With almost 400 duotone illustrations and a wealth of groundbreaking scholarship, this volume examines the fascinating culture of the ancient copy. It is sure to be treasured by the student of art history and the casual reader alike.
