Synopsis

The book offers an original contribution to the study of the Greek Revival through a new interpretation of Lord Elgin's expedition to the East (1799-1803). The name of Elgin is traditionally associated with the famous acquisition of the Parthenon Marbles, and this main focus has led critics to pay relatively little attention to his wider cultural and artistic achievements. Accordingly, the main literature on this subject has never analysed a remarkably rich and original collection of archaeological, architectural and sculptural drawings executed in Greece by the draughtsmen in the service of Lord Elgin during his diplomatic post at Constantinople, and how kept at the British Museum. The book provides an accurate study and comparison of the Elgin graphic collection with previous and contemporary archaeological enquiries and reveals the full significance of Lord Elgin's expedition.
