9788772884424: Tradition in Late Antique Sculpture (ACTA JUTLANDICA)

An examination of the reworking and reuse of marble sculpture in the late Roman period, a subject that has previously been neglected. Whilst repair and reuse of Antique sculpture has been common since the Renaissance - often for spurious reasons - Hannestad argues that well-known monuments like the Ara Pacis actually represent several working phases, with late Antiquity often setting the final stamp upon a monument, and he explores the implications of this on our understanding of the sculptural scenery of this period.

Book Description Aarhus University Press, Aarhus, 1994. Softcover. Cream & illus. wraps, French flaps, 166 pp., BW illus. "In the Roman world, marble sculpture could be reworked for several reasons. . Much Roman sculpture, including well-known monuments like the Ara Pacis, in fact represent several working phases. In this study it will be argued that late Antiquity often came to set the final stamp upon a monument. It was a period which was much concerned with its cultural heritage, an attitude which resulted not only in the careful preservation of existing monuments, but also in a substantial output of sculpture in the Classical tradition. A revised picture of late Antique sculpture in general is called for." (flap) Highly illustrated, with portraiture sculpture and busts. Scarce.
