Book Description

Provides a broad view of the current state and history of scholarship on the art of the ancient Near East

This ebook; A Companion to Ancient Near Eastern Art (PDF) covers the aesthetic traditions of Mesopotamia; Anatolia; Iran; and the Levant; from Neolithic times to the end of the Achaemenid Persian Empire around 330 BCE. It describes and examines the field from a variety of critical perspectives: across approaches and interpretive frameworks; materials; key explanatory concepts; and selected media and formats; and zones of interaction. This important work also addresses both traditional and emerging categories of material; intellectual perspectives; and research priorities. The ebook covers geography and chronology; medium and scale; context and setting while acknowledging the diversity of regional and cultural traditions and the uneven survival of evidence.

Part 1 of the ebook considers the methodologies and approaches that the field has drawn on and refined.

Part 2 addresses terms and concepts critical to understanding the subjects and formal characteristics of the Near Eastern material record; including the intellectual frameworks within which monuments have been approached and interpreted.

Part 3 surveys the field’s most distinctive and characteristic genres; with special reference to Mesopotamian art and architecture.

Part 4 considers involvement with artistic traditions across a broader reach; examining connections with Aegean; Egypt; and the Mediterranean. And finally;

Part 5 addresses intersections with the closely allied discipline of archaeology and the institutional stewardship of cultural heritage in the modern Middle East.

Told from multiple perspectives; A Companion to Ancient Near Eastern Art is an enlightening; must-have ebook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students of ancient Near East art and Near East history as well as those interested in art history and history in general.
