'... the author's stated aim, 'to explain something of what Roman art was intended to do, how it functioned, and how ... it was perceived', has been brilliantly achieved.' Arctos
This volume examines the "little barbarians," ten highly expressive Roman marble figures found in Rome in 1514, now recognized as copies of the Small (or Lesser) Attalid Dedication on the Athenian Akropolis. Manolis Korres' recent discovery of the monument's pedestals, fully published in this volume, led Andrews Stewart to a complete reconsideration of the statues' form, date, and significance. Illustrated with new photographs of all ten Barbarians, and 26 new drawings by Manolis Korres, it systematically traces the Barbarians' impact upon the intellectual history of art and archaeology.
