"The Cesnola Collection in The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the richest and most varied representation, outside Cyprus, of Cypriot antiquities. These works were purchased by the newly established Museum in the mid-1870s from General Luigi Palma di Cesnola, a Civil War cavalry officer who had amassed the objects while serving as the American consul on Cyprus." "This catalogue is published on the occasion of the opening of the Museum's four permanent galleries for ancient art from Cyprus. It is also the first scholarly publication since 1914 devoted to the Cesnola Collection (which totals approximately six thousand objects). The volume features some five hundred pieces from the collection, illustrated in new color photography. Dating from about 2500 B.C. to about A.D. 300, these works rank among the finest examples of Cypriot art from the prehistoric, Geometric, Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman periods. Among the objects are monumental sculpture; weapons, tools, and domestic utensils; vases, lamps, and ritual paraphernalia; dedicatory figurines; engraved sealstones and jewelry; and luxury objects."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Mit dem Aufstieg Roms zum Zentrum eines riesigen Imperiums nahm auch die römische Kunst ihre spezifischen Züge an. Dieser anregende und allgemeinverständliche Band zeigt, wie die Römer sich ab dem 3. Jahrhundert v. Chr. die griechische Kultur umfassend aneigneten und gleichzeitig eine ganz eigene Bildsprache ausbildeten. Er führt in die Entwicklung der römischen Kunst von der Zeit der Republik bis in die Spätantike ein und erläutert ihre Funktionen im öffentlichen wie im privaten Leben Roms. Zugleich macht er uns die Botschaften, die die Bilder in ihrem historischen Kontext vermittelten, zugänglich.
