Название: Revival and Invention: Sculpture through its Material Histories Автор(ы): Sebastien Clerbois and Martina Droth Издательство: Peter Lang AG Год: 2011 ISBN-13: 978-3039115525 Страниц: 324 Язык: English Формат: True PDF Размер: 19 MB
Materials may seem to be sculpture’s most obvious aspect. Traditionally seen as a means to an end, and frequently studied in terms of technical procedures, their intrinsic meaning often remains unquestioned. Yet materials comprise a field rich in meaning, bringing into play a wide range of issues crucial to our understanding of sculpture. This book places materials at the centre of our approach to sculpture, examining their symbolic and aesthetic language, their abstract and philosophical associations, and the ways in which they reveal the political, economic and social contexts of sculptural practice. Spanning a chronology from antiquity through to the end of the nineteenth century, the essays collected in this book uncover material properties as fundamental to artistic intentionality.

Greek Sculpture: Its Spirit and Its Principles
