Description: Los Angeles: Getty Publications, 2010. 24cm., pbk., 238pp. illus., most in color. Second edition. Publisher's summary : The J. Paul Getty Museum's antiquities collection contains more than fifty thousand ancient objects. Spanning thousands of years—from Preclassical times as far back as the third millennium B.C. through the third century A.D.—it encompasses Cycladic, Greek, Etruscan, South Italian, Roman, and Romano-Egyptian cultures. The collection includes one of the finest assemblages of ancient Greek vases in the United States; monumental marble sculptures and diminutive bronzes; Greek and Roman gems; and Hellenistic silverware, jewelry, and glass. In lively prose accompanied by a full-color photograph of each object, this handbook presents nearly two hundred of the Getty Museum's most important pieces in the antiquities collection.
