Examining the significant impact of the Etruscans on the formation of European culture and tracing the evolution of post-Renaissance views of their civilization, this massive catalogue documents more than 600 objects drawn from scores of international collections, including vases, bronze figurines, cinerary urns, tomb paintings, gold jewelry, weapons, architectural fragments and other artifacts as well as a diverse array of pictorial and decorative works produced from the 16th to the 20th century that reflect Etruscan themes and motifs. More than 40 essays discuss the architecture, trade, religion, language and society of the Etruscans as well as such varied topics as the direct and indirect dissemination of their culture throughout Europe, the rise of the "Etruscan Style" in 18th- and 19th-century decorative art, and the visions of Etruria presented in the writings of Huxley and Lawrence.
