Abstract:

From third-millennium-B.C. marble statuettes to gem-encrusted gold jewelry of the fourth and fifth centuries A.D., the collection of antiquities in the J. Paul Getty Museum testifies to the extraordinary skill and artistic achievements of sculptors, potters, painters, metalsmiths, and other artisans of the ancient Mediterranean world. Indicating both the quality of the individual pieces and the range of the collection, this volume illustrates many of the outstanding objects, among them a rare life-size Greek bronze statue depicting a victorious youth and J. Paul Getty's personal favorite, the marble statue known as the Lansdowne Herakles. Also included are a number of Greek and Etruscan terracotta vases, bronze and marble sculpture, and delicate late Classical and Ptolemaic gold jewelry.
