New studies on the interaction of various media in ancient Greek art

This collection includes twenty-one new essays by leading scholars in the field of Greek art and archaeology. Exploring a range of media including vase painting, sculpture, gems and coins, they each address questions that cross the boundaries of specialised fields.

They outline the range of visual experiences at stake in the various media used in antiquity and shed light on the specificities of each medium. They show how meaning is produced, according to the nature of the medium: its use, context and enunciative structure. Also explored are the different methodologies used to produce meaning: how do images 'make', or create, sense to their ancient viewers and how can we now access those meanings?

This richly illustrated volume offers new interpretations and arguments concerning fundamental questions in the field which expands our knowledge and understanding of Greek art, patrons and viewers.

Industry Reviews
Images at the Crossroads is a truly remarkable publication in whole and in its parts, which stands to have a major impact on future research on the interpretation of images from antiquity. It is ground-breaking in its scope and depth of analysis, and, with its strong emphasis on sociocultural and sociohistorical approaches, constitutes a most appropriate homage to Fran?ois Lissarrague's enduring scholarly heritage.--Anne Mackay, University of Auckland "Bryn Mawr Classical Review"

The merit of this collection is to offer shared knowledge about the world of images in ancient Greece. All types of representations are studied, in a comparative vision which places the image at the heart of the interpretation, providing a comparative panorama of the multiple fields of iconographic research in the ancient Greek world.

--Professor Alain Schnapp, Professor Emeritus of Classical Archaeology, Universit? Paris 1
