Image and Myth synopsis
In museum visits, we go through beautiful, well-preserved orchards from ancient Greece - but how many times do we understand the images you imagine? In "The Picture and the Myth", Luca Giuliani tells the stories behind the images and explores how ancient artists had to identify the ornaments and historical and mythical events that could be used to tell a basic story while taking into account the tastes and expectations of customers. .
Giuliani covers a range of Greek elegance and its growth between the old and Hellenistic periods, and describes the intellectual, social and artistic context in which the images were created. It reveals that developments in a Greek vase were largely driven in the past as they were by tradition - the most famous story, the less the artists had to interpret.
With the transformation of literary culture from oral tradition, where stories have always been constantly changing, and the stability of written texts, the images ultimately produced by artists have become more than illustrations of ecclesiastical works. At the same time, the book "The Picture and the Myth" builds a cultural work and a new artistic history to understand the visual culture of ancient Greece..
