LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Michael Joseph, London, 1967. hardcover, 9 3/4" x 8", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. Barcode cut from ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Grey cloth-bound boards with silver type to spine, 8 colour plates, approx 350 b&w photographs, bibliography, and six-page index. After illustrating the first effects of the Classical ideal upon other arts, paying great attention to the genius of the Etruscan works, this book examines how the Romans shifted emphasis in the function of sculpture. The beginnings of the creative struggle of native arts in the east and west leads to the final section, where the author shows the dramatic conflict within Christianity in its attitude to anthropomorphic representation.
