Light on Stone : Greek and Roman Sculpture in The Metropolitian Museum of Art: A Photographic Essay

Description

In 1999, the Metropolitan Museum's renowned collection of ancient Greek sculpture was reinstalled in dramatic new galleries. This book features specially commissioned photographs of these monumental marble sculptures in their new setting, which is beautifully enhanced by natural light. An informative essay serves as an introduction to the Greek sculpture collection and complements these exquisite photographs, which feature details as well as overall views of sculptural groups. The images are in black and white, sepia, and color. An illustrated checklist provides informative descriptions of the sculptures from the author's personal perspective.
