Depicting The Dead

The present monograph takes its place in a now well-established tradition of seeing sarcophagi as visual statements of deceased individuals that used allegories to plot lives and personal memories against mythological and other idealised narratives. It focuses on Roman sarcophagi, often referred to as stadtromisch, which reflects the fact that the field has traditionally been dominated by German scholars. The aim of the book is twofold: Firstly, it is an exploration of how to read Roman sarcophagi, which starts from those with portraits, but which can contribute more broadly to the study of sarcophagi in general. Secondly, this book investigates gender values as represented through images and how to locate the individual in standardised iconography.

The Eye of the Shah is the beautifully illustrated catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. The volume presents some two hundred photographs—the great majority of which have never been seen by the public—taken by royal photographers engaged by Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (r. 1848–1896), the longest-reigning shah of Iran's Qajar Dynasty (1785–1925). The photographs include a group of unprecedented, captivating images of life in the royal court in Tehran. These are complemented by photographs of historic monuments that capture the grand, eloquent beauty of such iconic ancient sites as Persepolis and Naqsh-e Rostam. The Eye of the Shah also looks at vintage photographic albums, memorabilia that used formal portraits of the shah, and works by two modern Iranian photographers, Bahman Jalali (1944–2010) and Shadi Ghadirian (b. 1974). The catalogue's essays discuss such topics as the achievements of court photographers in the service of Naser al-Din Shah, including Reza ‘Akkasbashi, ‘Abdollah Mirza Qajar, and Dust Mohammad Khan Mo‘ayyer al-Mamalek, and the volume also examines the role of photography in helping Iranians document Iran's pre-Islamic monuments during the second half of the nineteenth century. Contributors include Carmen Pérez González, Judith A. Lerner, and Reza Sheikh.

This book is the first in a major three-volume series that will survey China's immense wealth of art, architecture, and artifacts from prehistoric times to the twentieth century. The Arts of China to A.D. 900 investigates the beginnings of the traditions on which much of the art rests, moving from Neolithic and Bronze Age China to the era of the Tang Dynasty around A.D. 900. William Watson discusses in lively detail a wide range of art forms and techniques: porcelain and pottery, lacquer, religious and secular painting and sculpture, mural painting, monumental sculpture and architecture. He explains the materials and techniques of bronze casting, jade carving, pottery manufacture, and other arts, and he describes the most important sites, the artifacts that were produced at each one, and the historical interactions between different areas. He discusses the iconography, the technique and the function of every art form. Written by one of the most distinguished scholars in the field of Chinese art and archaeology, this lavishly illustrated book will be a valuable resource for both experts and beginners in the field.

A prolific engraver, sculptor, letter-cutter and typographer, Eric Gill (1882 - 1940) chose to be remembered on his grave simply as a stone carver. He carved his first figural sculpture in 1909, and his distinctive, serene figures, such as his famous Stations of the Cross carving in Westminster Cathedral, have since become familiar landmarks and also appear in public and private collections throughout the world. This beautifully illustrated book is the first ever complete survey of Eric Gill's figural sculpture. With an extensive essay on his works and 300 detailed catalog entries, it is a significant contribution to contemporary art history. The 350 accompanying photographs, many from the sculptor's own collection, reveal Eric Gill to be one of the major artists of the twentieth century and afford us a fascinating insight into the creativity of this eccentric genius.

Catalog of the first exhibition to consider the remarkable endurance and symbolic resonance of the horse in Chinese art, history, and philosophy. It features almost 30 works, including 13 sculptures from the Han-Tang dynasties, and hand scrolls, hanging scrolls, and album leaves from the Tang-Qing dynasties. By examining the tremendous range of equine depictions in Chinese art, it reveals the horse as an exceptionally fluid and potent means for the continual construction and reconstruction of Chinese identity, a figure of enduring fascination and value given its usefulness -- both real and symbolic -- to humankind.

*Perfect for fans of ITV's epic drama series, THE GREAT FIRE* Opening in the 1640s, as the city was gripped in tumult leading up to the English Civil War, THE PHOENIX charts the lives and works of five extraordinary men, who would grow up in the chaos of a world turned upside down: the architect, Sir Christopher Wren; gardener and virtuosi, John Evelyn; the scientist, Robert Hooke; the radical philosopher, John Locke and the builder, Nicholas Barbon. At the heart of the story is the rebuilding of London's iconic cathedral, St Paul's. Interweaving science, architecture, history and philosophy, THE PHOENIX tells the story of the formation of the first modern city.
