Description: Venezia: Arsenale, 2010. 33cm., hardcover, slipcase, 319pp 250 color illus. Summary: Mosaics of various kinds in the Greek-Roman period – an ancient and splendid form of artistic expression – are also extremely important in the study of ancient figurative art in overall terms, since most wall paintings of the period have been lost. Mosaics in many cases are the only “testimony” of great the painting of the times and have handed down to us several, otherwise lost pictorial masterpieces. An example is the mosaic of Alexander found in the Home of the Faun in Pompeii – a copy of a famous painting that Pliny suggested was the work of Greek painter Philóxenos (IV century B.C.). This volume boasts extremely well documented text and awealth of splendid images; it analyses and reveals the secrets behind the beauty and harmony of ancient mosaics.
