Exquisite gold pendants from the ancient Greek world, intricately cut openwork gold earrings and multicolored bead necklaces from the Roman empire, sumptuous gold belt buckles from Byzantine - these are among the more than three hundred objects reproduced and documented in this meticulously researched exhibition catalog. Many of the objects, drawn from the vast and remarkable collection of ancient art amassed by Burton Y. Berry and belonging to the Indiana University Art Museum, are published here for the first time. The catalog is divided into sections on the Chalcolithic/Bronze age, Archaic/Classical, Hellenistic/Greco-Roman, Roman/Early Byzantine, and Byzantine periods. Each section is introduced by an essay placing the items in the context of their time. Maps, an illustrated essay on techniques, a chapter on Byzantine jewelry by Barbara Deppert, and an extensive bibliography make "A Golden Legacy" an indispensable resource for studying and enjoying the art of ancient jewelry.Über den Autor:
