Book Description Giunti, Firenze, 2015. Book Condition: NEW. Firenze: Giunti, 2015 9788809803374 2105 367 p. : ill. col. ; 28 cm. Exhibition catalogue: Florence, Palazzo Strozzi, 14 March-21 June 2015. Organised by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and National Gallery of Art, Washington with the collaboration of Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Toscana. Starting 14 March 2015 Palazzo Strozzi in Florence will be hosting a major exhibition showcasing some of the ancient world's most important masterpieces of sculpture with exhibits from leading Italian and international museums. The exhibition uses 50 bronze sculptures to tell the story of the spectacular artistic developments of the Hellenistic era throughout the Mediterranean basin. Under Alexander the Great Hellenistic sculpture saw the birth of a genre known as ''portraits of power'', but at the same time it also revolutionised the style of Classical art by imbuing its figures with pathos, or expressiveness. Monumental statues of gods, athletes and heroes will be displayed alongside portraits of historical figures, in a journey allowing visitors to explore the fascinating stories of these masterpieces' discovery while also probing the production and casting processes and the finishing techniques adopted.

Book Description Gruppo Editoriale Giunti, 2015. Book Condition: new. Firenze, Palazzo Strozzi, 14 marzo - 21 giugno 2015. Edited by Jens Daehner e Kenneth Lapatin. Translated by Weiss J. H. Firenze, 2015; paperback, pp. 368, ill., cm 24,5x29. (Cataloghi mostre). For the general public and specialists alike, the Hellenistic period (323-31 BC) and its diverse artistic legacy remain underexplored and not well understood. Yet it was a time when artists throughout the Mediterranean developed new forms, dynamic compositions, and graphic realism to meet new expressive goals, particularly in the realm of portraiture. Rare survivors from antiquity, large bronze statues are today often displayed in isolation, decontextualized as masterpieces of ancient art. Power and Pathos gathers together significant examples of bronze sculpture in order to highlight their varying styles, techniques, contexts, functions, and histories. As the first comprehensive volume on large-scale Hellenistic bronze statuary, this book includes groundbreaking archaeological, art-historical, and scientific essays offering new approaches to understanding ancient production and correctly identifying these remarkable pieces. Designed to become the standard reference for decades to come, the book emphasizes the unique role of bronze both as a medium of prestige and artistic innovation and as a material exceptionally suited for reproduction.
