The study of Roman sculpture has been an essential part of the disciplines of Art History and Classics since the eighteenth century. Famous works like the Laoco?n, the Arch of Titus, and the colossal portrait of Constantine are familiar to millions. Again and again, scholars have returned to sculpture to answer questions about Roman art, society, and history. Indeed, the field of Roman sculptural studies encompasses not only the full chronological range of the Roman world but also its expansive geography, and a variety of artistic media, formats, sizes, and functions. Exciting new theories, methods, and approaches have transformed the specialized literature on the subject in recent decades. Rather than creating another chronological catalogue of representative examples from various periods, genres, and settings, The Oxford Handbook of Roman Sculpture synthesizes current best practices for studying this central medium of Roman art, situating it within the larger fields of Art History, Classical Archaeology, and Roman Studies. This comprehensive volume fills the gap between introductory textbooks and highly focused professional literature. The Oxford Handbook of Roman Sculpture conveniently presents new technical, scientific, literary, and theoretical approaches to the study of Roman sculpture in one reference volume while simultaneously complementing textbooks and other publications that present well-known works in the corpus. The contributors to this volume address metropolitan and provincial material from the early republican period through late antiquity in an engaging and fresh style. Authoritative, innovative, and up-to-date, The Oxford Handbook of Roman Sculpture will remain an invaluable resource for years to come.

Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture, Volume VI: Northern Yorkshire

The rich and diverse visual heritage of Northern Yorkshire in the pre-Conquest period is revealed in this major addition to the much-admired Corpus series. This volume surveys the sculpture in the historic North Riding of Yorkshire (excluding those parts already covered in Volume III). The total of some 400 carvings include important pre-Viking Age monuments, such as the crosses at Croft, Easby and Masham. The excavated sculpture from Whitby Abbey include a range of inscriptions which form crucial epigraphical evidence for our understanding of the pre-Conquest monastery. But Anglo-Scandinavian monuments predominate, with major collections at Brompton, Kirklevington and Lythe. A number of workshops have been identified and it was in this area that the hogback recumbent memorial first appeared. Much of the Anglian sculpture has stylistic connections with western Yorkshire and Mercia, and the wider connections with Europe are manifest in the iconography and styles of the great crosses at Easby, Masham and Cundall/Aldborough. There are strong Irish links with the area in the Anglo-Scandinavian period. This catalogue is a crucial piece in the Corpus jigsaw linking Volumes I, II and III, and marks the culmination of the lifetime's work of a great Anglo-Saxon scholar.

This book is primarily intended to be used in courses in the general history of art in colleges and universities. I believe that the nonacademic reading public interested in art also will find it useful. No one-year introduction to the history of art can possibly utilize all the material and all the illustrations offered in these two volumes. I have deliberately erred on the side of overinclusiveness in order to provide individual teachers with a wide possibility of choice, according to their own judgments of what should be presented to the beginning student. After much painful deliberation, the publishers and 1 decided to omit consideration of the art of the Far East. To do justice to the arts of China. Japan. India, and Southeast Asia in anything like their due proportion to Western art would have meant expanding these volumes beyond the limits of what is economically practicable, or else reducing the arts of East and West alike to a skeletal state. Also, to the best of our knowledge, most introductory courses do not take up Far Eastern art, but leave it for another course. It has always seemed to me that the first thing a student wants from a book of this sort is a gateway to a new and unfamiliar world. I have tried to keep this primary purpose of the book in mind in writing every page. At this juncture I look back on my increasingly remote youth with a nostalgia colored by warm gratitude to the great scholars who taught me about many of the works I describe in the following pages, and above all to Meyer Schapiro, my first teacher in the history of art. Not only did he introduce me to the fields of medieval and modern art, in which his knowledge is vast, but also he opened my eyes to the meaning of art-historical studies and to methods of art-historical thought and investigation. Here and there throughout the book Meyer Schapiro's name is mentioned, but to acknowledge my full indebtedness to his intellect, his erudition, and his imagination it should appear on every page. In my special field of Italian art. I shall always be grateful to the teaching and example of Millard Meiss in the study of Italian painting, and of Richard Krautheimer in that of Italian architecture. In innumerable ways I am grateful to other magnificent teachers now no longer living, especially to Walter W. S. Cook. Walter Friedlaender, Karl Lehmann, Richard Offner. Erwin Panofsky, George Rowley, and Rudolf Wittkower. The faith, advice, and inspiration of Bernard Berenson stood me in good stead in many a difficult moment. I am not likely to forget what I owe to the knowledge, generosity, and courage of Katherine S. Dreier. who opened to me in 1935 her pioneer collection of modern art. At this moment I think also of all my classes since I began teaching in 1939 and the host of students who have accompanied me in the exploration of the world of art. My colleagues at the University of Virginia—Malcolm Bell III for ancient art. John J. Yiannias for Byzantine and early medieval, Marion Roberts Sargent for late medieval and Northern Renaissance, Keith P. F. Moxey for Baroque, and David Winter for the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—read the sections of the manuscript that pertain to their special fields, gave me the benefit of their learning and insight, caught errors of fact and interpretation, and made many crucial suggestions. I am deeply appreciative of the confidence of Harry N. Abrams for having entrusted me with the task of writing this book, and grateful to the unforgettable Milton S. Fox for starting me off on it, and to the patient Paul Anbinder for having put up with the innumerable delays in completing it. My thanks also go to Margaret Kaplan and to John P. O'Neill, who has an eagle eye in the pursuit of an error, for their invaluable editorial assistance, and to Barbara Lyons, who—with infinite labor — assembled all the illustrative materials My final debt is to Janice F. Gurley, for four years the faithful secretary of the Art Department at the University of Virginia, who typed every w ord of the manuscript in her spare time. Frederick Hartt Old Ordinary Charlottesville, Virginia May 25, 1975 The news of Professor Meiss' tragic death has reached me only after this manuscript went to press. Now I must add to my acknowledgment of lifelong indebtedness to Professor Meiss this halting expression of deep personal grief at his loss.
