The papers in this volume derive from the proceedings of an international symposium held at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in June 2006 in connection with the exhibition "The Colors of Clay: Special Techniques in Athenian Vases." The themes of the exhibition vases executed in bilingual, coral-red gloss, outline, Kerch-style, white ground, and Six s techniques, as well as examples with added clay and gilding, and sculpted vases and additions are the touchstones for the essays. More than twenty papers by renowned scholars are grouped under such general rubrics as Social Contexts for Athenian Vases in Special Techniques; Conservation, Analysis, and Experimentation; Artists, Workshops, and Production; and Markets and Exchange."

"The catalogue ... is truly excellent and makes an important contribution to the study of Greek Art." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review "An overwhelming volume. The subject matter ... is described in great detail in nine chapters. Essential." --Choice This catalogue documents a major exhibition at the Getty Villa that was the first ever to focus on ancient Athenian terracotta vases made by techniques other than the well-known black- and red-figure styles. The exhibition comprised vases executed in bilingual, coral-red gloss, outline, Kerch-style, white ground, and Six's technique, as well as examples with added clay and gilding, and plastic vases and additions. The Colors of Clay opens with an introductory essay that integrates the diverse themes of the exhibition and sets them within the context of vase making in general; a second essay discusses conservation issues related to several of the techniques. A detailed discussion of the techniques featured in the exhibition precedes each section of the catalogue. More than a hundred vases from museums in the United States and Europe are described in depth.

Athenian Potters and Painters III

Athenian Potters and Painters III presents a rich mass of new material on Greek vases, including finds from excavations at the Kerameikos in Athens and Despotiko in the Cyclades. Some contributions focus on painters or workshops Ð Paseas, the Robinson Group, and the structure of the figured pottery industry in Athens; others on vase forms Ð plates, phialai, cups, and the change in shapes at the end of the sixth century BC. Context, trade, kalos inscriptions, reception, the fabrication of inscribed paintersÕ names to create a fictitious biography, and the reconstruction of the contents of an Etruscan tomb are also explored. The iconography and iconology of various types of figured scenes on Attic pottery serve as the subject of a wide range of papers Ð chariots, dogs, baskets, heads, departures, an Amazonomachy, Menelaus and Helen, red-figure komasts, symposia, and scenes of pursuit. Among the special vases presented are a black spotlight stamnos and a column krater by the Suessula Painter. Athenian Potters and Painters III, the proceedings of an international conference held at the College of William and Mary in Virginia in 2012, will, like the previous two volumes, become a standard reference work in the study of Greek pottery.

Figur ohne Raum?

Bäume und Felsen in der attischen Vasenmalerei des 6. und 5. Jahrhunderts v.Chr

Nikolaus Dietrich presents a general model for the understanding of space in Greek paintings, based on an analysis of landscape elements in Attic vase painting of the 6th and 5th centuries BC. Our concept of space in landscapes proves to be completely unsuitable for understanding these motifs. Space in Greek paintings is not an earlier stage in the development of the concept we have employed since the Renaissance, but a completely different one, and a clear indication of the cultural relativity of our way of seeing things.

Attische Grabbezirke klassischer Zeit

English summary: The Attic burial districts started to develop around 430 BC. These conglomerates of architecture, burial sites and burial offerings, sacrificial sites and stelae belonged to the long-standing Greek sepulchral tradition. The design of the interior of the burial districts is of particular interest, begging the question as to whether the burial grounds were laid out as terraces or whether they were walled-in spaces, which allow us to come to conclusions as to whether funerals or later memorial rites took place within the districts or literally on top of them. With reference to the burial districts, Jan Breder uses this study to address the question of whether certain types of buildings held an intrinsic meaning beyond their actual functionality. German description: Um 430 v.Chr. setzten die attischen Grabbezirke ein. Diese Komplexe aus Architektur, Bestattung mit Beigaben, Opferstellen und Stelenausstattung standen im Kontext der langen griechischen Sepulkraltradition. Besonders interessant ist der Aspekt der Gestaltung des Innenraumes der Grabbezirke, also die Frage, ob die Grabanlagen terrassenartig hoch verfullt waren oder nach einer Umfriedung den Bestattungsplatz umschlossen, woraus sich erkennen lasst, ob Bestattungen oder spatere Gedachtnisriten innerhalb des Grabbezirks oder auf dessen Oberflache stattfanden. Jan Breder untersucht in seiner Studie am Gegenstand der Grabbezirke die Frage, ob bestimmten Bauformen eine inhaltliche Bedeutung immanent war, die uber ihre reine Funktionalitat hinausging. Die Analyse von Konstruktion und Wandaufbau zeigt, dass die Umfassungsmauern der Grabbezirke denen von Heiligtumern entsprachen, durch ihr spezifisches Erscheinungsbild evozierten sie die Konnotation als "Temenos" und boten den Hinterbliebenen die Moglichkeit, die Grabstatte im Habitus einer Kultstatte zu prasentieren. Auch in der Ausstattung der Grabbezirke mit Stelen und Marmorgefassen lassen sich sakralisierende Elemente beobachten, zudem wurden seit langem etablierte Objekte der Grabpflege wie Lekythen in den Grabbezirksfassaden in Marmor monumentalisiert. Breder stellt uberzeugend dar, dass sich als Beweggrund fur die Gestaltung der Grabbezirke auf eine dauerhafte Darstellung der als Nomizomena bezeichneten Totenriten schliessen lasst.
