Summary
"Furthering the study of one of the most influential but less known periods of Greek art and culture, this addition to The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Symposia series is based on papers given in conjunction with the award-winning exhibition "Pergamon and the Hellenistic Kingdoms of the Ancient World" (2016). Twenty essays by internationally renowned scholars exemplify the scope of the Hellenistic arts, which cover the three centuries from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. to the suicide of Cleopatra in 30 B.C. Subjects range from contemporary museum displays of archaeological material to the influence of Hellenistic art and its legacy in the ancient Roman world. Highlighting the holdings of the Metropolitan, this volume offers new insights into the innovations and technical mastery of Hellenistic artists and the enduring vitality of these works"--Publisher's website.
