Description

By Blair Fowlkes-Childs and Michael Seymour

The World between Empires: A Picture Album presents an introduction to the art and culture of the Middle East in the years 100 B.C.–A.D. 250, a time marked by the struggle for control by the Roman and Parthian Empires. Adapted from the exhibition catalogue, this picture album illustrates the cultural histories of the cities along the great incense and silk routes that connected southwestern Arabia, Nabataea, Judaea, Syria, and Mesopotamia. Twenty-eight carefully selected objects and an informative text provide a fascinating primer to the themes discussed in the catalogue and exhibition. This beautifully illustrated album will inspire reflection about ancient empires long after the reader has visited the galleries.

This engaging picture album—in addition to a full-length exhibition catalogue—was produced in conjunction with The World between Empires: Art and Identity in the Ancient Middle East at The Met Fifth Avenue.
