Tan paper wraps, 238 pp., many BW illus. "The symbolic gesture was used in works of art as a principal instrument of status identification because gestures were familiar social acts and their significance was accessible to all. Then, too, a gesture could be made highly visible and thereby develop within a composition the formal differences which corresponded to distinctions of social standing. Through this device the artist organized his design to demonstrate the status of the parties relative to each other and to the receptive spectator. The denotation of status through gestures is an iconological problem which is intimately connected with the aesthetic purposes of the Roman monuments." (intro) A uncommon find. (Inventory #: 156080)
