Summary

Summary

The Fitzwilliam Museum has arguably one of the finest collections of antiquities in the United Kingdom. Assembled mainly through bequests and gifts, it is a stunning exhibition of connoisseurship. This splendidly illustrated book presents sixty-four images of the finest examples of Greek, Etruscan, Cypriot, and Roman art dating from the Bronze Age to the late Roman Period, and ranging from the monumental to the decorative. The concise text provides an introduction to the art, technology, and history for the layman, as well as new insights for the expert. Many of the objects are published here for the first time. Greek and Roman Art was given a commendation in the Best Museum Publication category awarded by the Museums Association, Gulbenkian Awards for Museums and Galleries 1998.
