Description

By Carlos A. Picón and Seán Hemingway

The Hellenistic period–the nearly three centuries between the death of Alexander the Great, in 323 B.C., and the suicide of the Egyptian queen Kleopatra VII (the famous "Cleopatra"), in 30 B.C.—is one of the most complex and exciting epochs of ancient Greek art. This beautifully illustrated volume examines the rich diversity of art forms that arose through the patronage of the royal courts of the Hellenistic kingdoms, placing special emphasis on Pergamon, capital of the Attalid dynasty, which ruled over large parts of Asia Minor. Pergamon and the Hellenistic Kingdoms of the Ancient World brings together the insights of a team of internationally renowned scholars, who reveal how the art of Classical Greece was transformed during this period, melding with predominantly Eastern cultural traditions to yield new standards and conventions in taste and style.

Carlos A. Picón is Curator in Charge and Seán Hemingway is Curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A come hither book This catalog made me determined to visit the exhibit when in New York. I've always been interested in classical sculpture and architecture, and this book has wonderful photos of many fine pieces. Some of these I had seen in Berlin, and many were brand new to me. This catalog is a perfect introduction to the ancient world.
