Lauren Kroiz’s new book featured on UC Press blog
Lauren Kroiz's new book Cultivating Citizens: The Regional Work of Art in the New Deal Era has been released and was recently featured on the University of California Press's blog.
New Book by Andrew StewartThe Department is pleased to announce the publication of a new book by Andrew Stewart, Art in the Hellenistic World. From the Cambridge University Press announcement: "What was Hellenistic art, and what were its contexts, aims, achievements, and impact? This textbook introduces students to these questions and offers a series of answers to them. Its twelve chapters and two “focus” sections examine Hellenistic sculpture, painting, luxury arts, and architecture. Thematically organized, spanning the three centuries from Alexander to Augustus, and ranging geographically from Italy to India and the Black Sea to Nubia, the book examines key monuments of Hellenistic art in relation to the great political, social, cultural, and intellectual issues of the time. It is illustrated with 170 photographs (mostly in color, and many never before published) and contextualized through excerpts from Hellenistic literature and inscriptions. Helpful ancillary features include maps, appendices with background on Hellenistic artists and translations of key documents, a full glossary, a timeline, brief biographies of key figures, suggestions for further reading, and bibliographical references."
