Light on Stone: Greek and Roman Sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art : a Photographic Essay
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2003 - 100 páginas
"Light on Stone offers a visit to the new Greek Galleries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Since 1999 the Museum's collection of Classical marble sculpture has literally appeared in a new light. The galleries featuring Greek art of the sixth, fifth, and fourth centuries B.C. have been renovated and reinstalled in a way that allows daylight to pour in through high windows and a clear skylight onto the marble statues and reliefs. Ever-shifting shadows and highlights appear to transform and animate these works. The photographs in this book attempt to capture some of those effects, showing statues in different kinds of light, in context with other works, and in close-up detail. An introductory essay and extended notes on each work of art give background information. The photography is by Joseph Coscia, Jr., Associate Chief Photographer in the Museum's Photograph Studio. The text is by Elizabeth J. Milleker, Associate Curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
