Studies in the Historiography of Classical Art: II. Historiographic Structures in the Study of Classical Art


Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars


Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology


For residence at the National Humanities Center during academic year 2005-2006


The project continues a long-term study of how the history of ancient Greek and Roman art has been written from antiquity through the present. One part examines the contexts and content of the ancient textual sources, questioning their accepted documentary value. The second examines the context of "lifelikeness" in ancient and modern accounts of the stylistic development of classical art.
