This book concerns the history of the interpretation of Attic painted vases, and is based on a comparative study of the works of Edmond Pottier (1855-1934), the founder and organizer of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, and John Beazley (1885-1970), who carried out the majority of vase attributions. The comparison between the two men involves an examination of two intellectual traditions which run through the history of the study of pottery. The first of these accentuates the documentary value of vases and the need to ensure their global publication, while the second views vases as objets d'art, and endeavours to trace the development of artistic forms by constructing a history of vase-painters. In reality these approaches are not directly conflicting, but represent two poles around which the discipline of pottery scholarship is organized. By showing how both interpretations have gained support in the more recent past, this work aims to provide a better understanding of the issues involved in the study of pottery today.

Review:

... the most interesting study of the practice of a branch of Classical studies that I have ever read: well-written, balanced, penetrating - and sensitively translated by Liz Nash ... unfailingly intelligent account. (Anthony M. Snodgrass, Clare College, Cambridge - Hermathena: A Trinity College Dublin Review)

For the English readership, to whom Beazley is well known, this volume's greatest contribution is the contextualization of the life and work of Pottier, and of the origins of the CVA. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

The volume is handsome and well produced, with a traditional and tidy appearance. The footnotes are numerous yet pithy, and, quite refreshingly, serve more as a launching point for further research than a justification of the author's own assertions. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

Rouet is perfectly qualified in the role he assumes as advocate and liaison between the two traditions represented by Pottier and Beazley. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

... engaging and useful. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

It is a landmark for one simple reason: it looks beyond the borders of the English-speaking world to investigate Beazley's impact across the Channel. (Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement)

It is in his careful comparison between Pottier and Beazley that Rouet is at his most instructive. (Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement)

Manages to breathe life back into discussions of Beazley. (Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement)
