View: 6289In a 1988 conference, American and British scholars unexpectedly discovered that their ideas were converging in ways that formed a new picture of the variegated Hellenistic mosaic. That picture emerges in these essays and eloquently displays the breadth of modern interest in the Hellenistic Age. A distrust of all ideologies has altered old views of ancient political structures, and feminism has also changed earlier assessments. The current emphasis on multiculturalism has consciously deemphasized the Western, Greco-Roman tradition, and Nubians, Bactrians, and other subject peoples of the time are receiving attention in their own right, not just as recipients of Greco-Roman culture. History, like Herakleitos' river, never stands still. These essays share a collective sense of discovery and a sparking of new ideas—they are a welcome beginning to the reexploration of a fascinatingly complex age.

Summary of Proceedings from a Workshop Held at the Getty Villa, May 9, 2007

View: 819An international workshop on the Cult Statue of a Goddess was held at the Getty Villa on May 9, 2007. Sponsored by the J. Paul Getty Museum, it brought together distinguished speakers from Italy, New Zealand, and the United States as well as observers from the Sicilian Regional Ministry of Culture and Environmental Heritage, the Archaeological Institute of America, and colleagues from across the Getty. The topics addressed comprise pseudo-acrolithic sculpture in Archaic and Classical Greece, art-historical observations about the Cult Statue, petrographic and micropalaeontological data about the statue, survey of soil residues from the statue, and pollen analysis of those soil residues. The research undertaken and the information provided by this group will help better to determine the Cult Statue's ancient origins. The results of this workshop were a part of the Getty Museum's final stages of research before the statue was sent to Italy in 2011.

View: 3488Katherine Dohan Morrow's study represents the first comprehensive guide to the history of ancient Greek footwear and the chronology of its development. Her thorough research answers some long-standing questions about the originality, iconography, and identification of various Greek sculptures and provides, through its clear chronology, an indispensable tool for dating Greek sculpture. The result is an authoritative, long overdue work that will serve as an eminently useful handbook for museum curators, classical archaeologists, art historians, and students of costume. Morrow's research is unusually reliable because it includes only footwear seen on original Greek sculptures dating from ca. 700 to 331 B.C. By consigning often untrustworthy Roman copies and adaptations to an appendix, she is able to present a sound discussion of Greek footwear based on an unadulterated corpus of Greek statuary. Her resulting findings are impressive. There was, Morrow reveals, a well-defined, limited repertoire of footwear styles used in each specific phase of Greek sculpture. Consequently, she argues, particular sandal styles can help date Greek sculptures. Demonstrating the utility of this system and the far-reaching impact of her study--one that is likely to affect our knowledge of ancient Greek art for years to come--she herself redates statues, settles several chronological controversies, and solves some nagging cases of mistaken attribution.
