Approaches to the Study of Attic Vases: Beazley and Pottier

Approaches to the Study of Attic Vases: Beazley and Pottier

by Philippe Rouet
     
 

This book examines the ways in which Attic painted vases were interpreted by Edmond Pottier (1855-1934), founder of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, and John Beazley (1885-1970), the master of attributions in the twentieth century. The comparison shows two markedly different approaches, one primarily archaeological, the other centered on the history of ancient art.See more details below
