Description

Anyone with a fondness for the Met, as well as those who love classical sculpture, will enjoy this unusual volume. Coscia (associate chief photographer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art) photographed examples of Greek and Roman sculpture in views devoid of visitors that emphasize the varying effects of natural light coming in from the galleries' windows and skylights. The b&w photos are presented in tritone plates of superb quality followed by a catalogue describing the sculpture. Milleker, a curator, provides a short essay on classical sculpture, its collection, and analysis, beginning with Winckelmann in the 18th century. The volume is oversize, at 10x12show more
