'This is a rich, subtle, well-researched, fair, and often convincing study ... [It] is essential reading for any serious student of Greek art in general and the Alexander Mosaic in particular.' American Journal of ArchaeologyFrom the Publisher:
This book focuses on one of the richest, most complex and visually stunning monuments of classical antiquity. Contributing to a vast tradition of scholarship, which dates back to the discovery of the Mosaic in 1831, Ada Cohen here engages with, but departs from, a core of positivist assumptions that characterize this body of literature. In this study, she examines the Mosaic as it may have functioned in two different contexts, first as a Greek painting of the fourth century BC, and then as a Roman mosaic of c. 100 BC. A variety of interpretive issues regarding history and art history are examined, suggesting broader implications for the study of ancient monuments.
