Abstract:

An assembled collection of modern photographs of ancient sculpture in the round, concentrating on the Greek and Roman periods, Greek Archaic through the late Roman Empire (6th cent. BC-6th cent. AD). Photographic coverage is most complete for Greek, Etruscan, and Roman sculpture. While documentation of ancient art from American museums and auction houses is particularly strong, the holdings of European museums are also broadly represented. Of particular importance is the extensive coverage of extant marble statues of Archaic Greek girls and youths (korai and kouroi, with ca. 500 images of each); holdings of photographs of Etruscan bronze statuettes are strong as well.

The collection contains photographs from numerous sources, including commercial vendors and photographers, research institutions' archives, museum and auction house files, and scholars' archives. Among the commercial vendors and photographers, the most important sources are Alinari (including the Anderson and Brogi archives), Bulloz, Photographie Giraudon, Max Hutzel, Hirmer Verlag, Gabinetto fotografico nazionale, Rome, Guntram Koch, Barbara Bini, John Ross, and Emile Serafis.

Scholarly photographic archives dispersed into this collection include those of E.H. Richardson (Etruscan votive bronzes), Giovanni Becatti, and Ludwig Goldscheider, as well as a study collection acquired from the Department of Classics, University of California, Los Angeles. Research institutions' archives from which the collection holds copy prints include: Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI), Rome; Archivio fotografico vaticano; and American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
