Synopsis

Oxbow says: the stunning painted frescoes of the Bronze Age Aegean with their vibrant colours, beautiful women, daring men, wild animals and exotic plants, take us to a world that is remote from us, and yet seemingly accessible through its visual arts. This collection of essays, which is dedicated to the memory of Mark Cameron and his contribution to the study of Minoan painting, presents new ideas, interpretations and discoveries of Bronze Age Aegean painting. Whilst the introduction by Lyvia Morgan reviews the major discoveries in this field of study and discusses how they have altered and shaped the subject, the essays comprise a pastiche of chronological and technical studies, discussions of iconography and architectural context, as well as descriptions of paintings from palaces, villas and town houses across the Aegean world. The contributors explore issues of gender, prestige, power and divinity in the art, analyse pigments, plasters and methods of production, examine the subjects depicted, ideology, the preceptions of the artists, and the relationship between image and reality.

The impressive line-up of scholars contributing to this volume makes this an authoritative publication on the subject.
