Greek art and the Orient

Author: Ann Clyburn Gunter
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2009.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
For over a century, scholars have recognised an 'orientalising period' in the history of early Greek art, in which Greek artisans fashioned works of art under the stimulus of Near Eastern imports or resident foreign artisans. Gunter interrogates the categories of 'Greek' and 'Oriental' as problematic.
