9780892367221: The Villa Dei Papiri at Herculaneum: Life and Afterlife of a Sculpture Collection (Getty Trust Publications: J. Paul Getty Museum)
From the Publisher:

The Villa dei Papiri at Herculaneum buried during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, then rediscovered in 1750 contained a large collection of bronze and marble statuary and busts. Before they were published or exhibited, the sculptures were restored so as to appear whole: it is thus that they helped to shape early modern tastes in classical sculpture. Scholars have sought to assign names to the individual busts and statues and to discover a unified, planned sculptural program for the decoration of the Villa dei Papiri. Here, however, more objective questions are asked: Are the bronzes uniform enough in production technique and alloy or marble source to justify the notion of a single sculptural program? Did the owner of the Villa purchase the statues from one or from several sources?

Descripción Getty Publications, Los Angeles, 2005. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 416 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. ART. The Villa dei Papiri at HerculaneumÑburied during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, then rediscovered in 1750Ñcontained a large collection of bronze and marble statuary and busts. Before they were published or exhibited, the sculptures were restored so as to appear whole, thereby helping to shape early modern tastes in classical sculpture. This book describes the nature of the ancient sculptures and their impact on the modern public. Their chance discovery affected the interpretation of the statuesÑtheir styles and subjectsÑover the course of the next 250 years. The ancient sculptures were copied extensively in reproductions of various sizes and patinas. The author traces the popularity of these copies in Europe and America. Also presented in the book is a technical study of the production techniques and materials of the sculptures, as well as of their modern restoration history. Scientific analyses and detailed photographs reveal both how the pieces were cast and pieced together in antiquity and how they were restored in the eighteenth century. Even though this collection has been known for two and a half centuries, this book covers for the first time the eclectic nature of the sculptures, their actual condition, and their quality, pointing in some cases to mass production. Carol C. Mattusch is Mathy Professor of Art History at George Mason University in Virginia. "Mattusch has done a great service in writing this book. She has taken a look at a group of sculptures. . . the result is an entirely new insight into their production and manufacture, and the correction of many earlier misapprehensions about them." - Ancient West and East (Key Words: Villa dei Papiri, Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius, Sculpture Collections, Carol C. Mattusch). book. Nº de ref. de la librería 73398X2
