Product description

1994 marked the centenary of the respective death and birth of two great classical archaeologists, Sir Charles Newton and Sir Bernard Ashmole. Ashmole continued much of Newton's work on Greek sculpture from Caria and the Dodecanese, from which the friezes of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and the Demeter of Cnidus are particularly well-known. To mark the double centenary, the British Museum and King's College London held a colloquium at which twenty-one papers were presented, which `represent a new synthesis of current research into marble sculpture from the south-east Aegean'. Contents include: Sir Charles Newton, KCB (1816-1894) ( Brian F. Cook ); Bernard Ashmole (1894-1988): his contribution to the study of ancient Greek sculpture ( G. B. Waywell ); The polychromy of the Mausoleum ( Ian Jenkins, Corrado Gratziu and Andrew Middleton ); The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus: sculptural decoration and architectural background ( Kristian Jeppesen ); The marbles of the Mausoleum ( Susan Walker and K. J. Matthews ); The Cnidian Aphrodite ( Antonio Corso ); Sculpture from Labraynda ( Pontus Hellstrom ); Zwei hellenistiche Werke aus Stratonikeia ( Ramazan Ozgan ); A seated statue of Hermes from Cos: middle Imperial sculpture between myth and cult, a new proposal of identification ( Francesco Sirano ); Ptolemy or Artemis? A Hellenistic Sculpture from Cos ( Nicolas Stampolidis ) and Ionian sculpture of the Archaic period on Dorian Rhodes ( G. Kokkorou-Alevras ).
