Malibu, California: The J. Paul Getty Museum, 1993. Hardcover. Fine/NF. Grey cloth/boards. Gilt title. Glossy grey/color-illus. dj with white lettering. 244 pp. with 128 bw plates, 8 color plates, 45 bw figures, 128 bw profile drawings, and a fold-out chart of flower types. This lavishly-illustrated catalogue is devoted to the Museum's collection of silver and gold from the Hellenized Near East--one of the largest yet assembled. Among the objects included are rhyta, bowls, cups, jewelry, and decorative gold and silver ornaments for horse bridles and clothing. In an extensive introduction, the author dates the various groups of objects and places them within a wider cultural and archaeological context, providing a detailed stylistic analysis of the ornamental motifs of many pieces. Of particular importance is the inclusion of illustrations of some fifty little-known comparative objects as well as extensive bibliographic references. (Inventory #: 156052)
