FROM PASTURE TO POLIS: ART IN THE AGE OF HOMER. Ed. by Susan Langdon. Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Missouri, Columbia, 1993. Published by University of Missouri Press, Columbia. 266 pp. with 168 ills. (16 col.). 26 x 18 cm. LC 93-24787 ISBN 0826209289 In English.
Reviewing the dramatic social, political and religious transformations in the culture of early Iron Age Greece (c. 1000-700 B.C.) as reflected in the art of the period, this scholarly catalogue features illustrations and detailed discussions of some 100 ceramic vessels, bronze figurines, pendants and other artifacts selected from 26 North American public collections. A substantial essay examining interconnections between Geometric art and literature and assessing the historical accuracy of events and customs described in the Homeric epics precedes a five-part thematic presentation of the exhibited works, each section accompanied by a concise summary text.
