Volume 50 includes articles on a rare mechanical figure from ancient Egypt; isolated heads in south Italian vase painting; a bronze hellenistic dwarf; identification of the origins of Kizil paintings in the Metropolitan Museum; The Story of the Mercury and Herse tapestries and Gian Battista Lodi da Cremona; collecting sixteenth-century tapestries in twentieth-century America, specifically examining the Blumenthals and Jacques Seligmann; and Vincenzo de’ Rossi as an architect, considering a new drawing and a rediscovered project in the Pantheon in Rome.
