Black cloth, black & copper & color illus. dust jacket, 375 pp., 4 color plates, BW illus. "Presents a fresh analysis of a major intellectual problem in the history of art. Why did the arts of late antiquity move away from Classical naturalism towards spiritual abstraction? Arguing from a close examination of ancient art, images and texts, Jas Elsner shows how an understanding of Roman viewing practices greatly deepens our insight into this fundamental transformation. ... By addressing the subtleties inherent in ancient viewing, this study embarks on a quest to enrich our understanding of an era of profound artistic change." (dj). (Inventory #: 155878)
