ART AND THE ROMANS.  CLASSICAL WORLD SERIES., Haward, Anne.
41 Haward, Anne. ART AND THE ROMANS. CLASSICAL WORLD SERIES.
Bristol Classical Press, London, 1999. 
99 pp, 8 1/2" H, soft cover. ISBN 1853995584 B&w photographs, drawings. "This survey for the general student looks at the art created for and by the Romans and what they wanted from it. In place of the usual historical outline approach, (it) look s at the subject by genre; the Romans' appreciation of painting, sculpture and the decorative arts, in a society where the majority of work was commissioned, was different from that of the present day. Art for a world without printing or p h o t o g r a p h y to spread visual images meant much more direct contact with the artist and influence by the patron. Drawing on literary sources as well as illustrations from many parts of the Roman world, this survey up to the time of Constan ti ne c on si de rs w ha t Romans hoped to achieve and how far they were successful. Included are suggestions for further study, a bibliography and recommended sites to view the art discussed." Interior - previous owner's small stamp on inside o f f ron t c ove r, fai nt era sed p encil marks on free front endpaper, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - tiny scuff on spine, two soft creases at top corner of front cover - tiny crease at bottom corner. Very Go od

JAPANESE PORTRAIT SCULPTURE., Hisashi Mori.  Translated and adapted by W. Chie Ishibashi.

Kodansha, Tokyo, 1977, first English language edition. 
150 pp, small 4to (10 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0870112864 Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "A vital, rich tradition for over eight centuries, Japanese portrait sculpture is an art that has been unjustly ignor ed by the West. This book, the first in a Western language devoted solely to the subject, constitutes a major step in the transition from indifference to appreciation....(it) illuminates the principal characteristics and eccentricities of t h i s a r t , concisely delineating its social setting and historical and stylistic development. An intelligent discussion of individual works completes the picture, allowing the reader to evaluate, for the first time, the range and depth of th is l on g- n eg le ct ed art. Many of the obscurities of Japanese portrait sculpture are derived from its birth and development within the traditions of Buddhist sculpture. The use of statues as objects of worship, the depositing within them of com mem ora tiv e and vo tiv e o bjects, and their placement in 'portrait halls' - all these aspects of the Buddhist background are clarified in this book, giving the reader a full, insightful understanding of Japanese portrait sculpture....Lay scu lptu re d iver ged fr om t he m ains trea m of Buddhist sculpture in the thirteenth century, and though it is more easily understood than Buddhist portraiture, this books' knowlegeable description of its origins and development will greatly facilita te it s app recia tion ."

Waterhouse (1849-1917) was acclaimed during his lifetime as one of England's finest painters. This judgment has been endo rsed in recent years as the painter's reputation - and the value of his work - have reached new heights...He began to exhitit in the 1870s and from then on his career unfolded steadily; he was elected a full Royal Academician in 1895, and h i s D i p l o m a painting, 'The Mermaid', remains one of the best-loved of all Victorian paintings. Waterhouse was a master of narrative painting, and in his historical and mythological works he displayed an unerring feeling for the dramatic mo me nt , c om bi ne d wi th a fine sense of composition and superb painting technique. But above all it is the haunting beauty of his wistful female models that has ensured his lasting popularity...Anthony Hobson brings a painter's eye to the appre cia tio n of Wa ter hou se , a nd with its outstanding colour reproductions this new study will finally establish the artist as one of the great masters of Victorian painting."

In tracing the lives and careers of over eighty of these women, it shows that New Zealand women painters, sculptors and other art makers have achieved vital and significant imagery.
