Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

In 1999 the galleries of Greek and Roman sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art were refurbished, a process that has simply brought the statues to life. This `Photographic Essay' of art dating from the 6th, 5th and 4th centuries BC exploits the effects that the artificial and natural light, floating in through skylights in the vaulted ceiling, has on the sculptures. The casting of shadows and other light effects soften what can be rather harsh and austere marble statues, transforming and reinventing them for a modern audience. The photographs are stunning and are accompanied by an introductory essay and notes on each artwork by Elizabeth J Milleker.
