In the ancient world, terracotta sculpture was ubiquitous. Readily available and economical—unlike stone suitable for carving—clay allowed artisans to craft figures of remarkable variety and expressiveness. Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily attest to the prolific coroplastic workshops that supplied sacred and decorative images for sanctuaries, settlements, and cemeteries. Sixty terracottas are investigated here by noted scholar Maria Lucia Ferruzza, comprising a selection of significant types from the Getty’s larger collection—life-size sculptures, statuettes, heads and busts, altars, and decorative appliqués. In addition to the comprehensive catalogue entries, the publication includes a guide to the full collection of over one thousand other figurines and molds from the region by Getty curator of antiquities Claire L. Lyons. Reflecting the Getty's commitment to open content, Ancient Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily in the J. Paul Getty Museum is available online at www.getty.edu/publications/terracottas and may be downloaded free of charge in multiple formats. For readers who wish to have a bound reference copy, this paperback edition has been made available for sale.

In the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum are more than six hundred ancient lamps that span the sixth century BCE to the seventh century CE, most from the Roman Imperial period and largely created in Asia Minor or North Africa. These lamps have much to reveal about life, religion, pottery, and trade in the ancient Graeco-Roman world. Most of the Museum’s lamps have never before been published, and this extensive typological catalogue will thus be an invaluable scholarly resource for art historians, archaeologists, and those interested in the ancient world. Reflecting the Getty's commitment to open content, Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum is available online at http://www.getty.edu/publications/ancientlamps and may be downloaded free of charge in multiple formats, including PDF, MOBI/Kindle, and EPUB, and features zoomable images and multiple views of every lamp, an interactive map drawn from the Ancient World Mapping Center, and bibliographic references.

After colonizing the Aegean islands and the coast of Asia Minor, the ancient Greeks turned toward southern Italy and Sicily, driven by the unrest that troubled their homeland in the eighth and seventh centuries B.C. The new arrivals brought with them their language, as well as their cultural and religious traditions and the institution of the polis. In Italy they created an autonomous political community that eventually surpassed the cities of Greece in wealth, military power, and architectural and cultural splendor. Such forefathers of Western philosophy as Pythagoras, Parmenides, and Archimedes lived and worked within this civilization. The Greek Cities of Magna Graecia and Sicily presents an overview of Greek colonization in Italy and the principal historical events that took place in this area from the Archaic period until the ascendancy of the Romans. This comprehensive survey is followed by a review of the major archaeological sites in the region.

Van Dyck war Schüler und Mitarbeiter von Rubens. Als er Italien bereiste, lebte er in den Palästen seiner Gönner und trat selbst so vornehm und elegant auf, dass man ihn den “Malerkavalier” nannte. Er wurde 1632 zum Hofmaler des englischen Königs Karl II. (1630 bis 1685) ernannt. Seine beiden letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte er mit seiner jungen Frau auf einer Reise durch Europa. Doch seine Gesundheit war von der vielen Arbeit geschädigt, und er kehrte nach London zurück, um dort zu sterben. Seine letzte Ruhestätte fand er in der St. Paul’s Cathedral. Sein eigentlicher Ruhm gründet in seinen Portraits. Bei diesem Genre fand er zu einem überaus eleganten und raffinierten Stil, der das luxuriöse höfische Leben haargenau erfasste und zu einem Vorbild für die Künstler des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts wurde. Van Dyck war bestrebt, die italienischen Einflüsse (Tizian, Veronese, Bellini) mit der flämischen Tradition zu verschmelzen. Dort, wo ihm das gelang, haben seine Gemälde eine wunderbare Anmut, vor allem seine Madonnen und Hl. Familien, seine Kreuzigungen und Kreuzesabnahmen und auch manche seiner mythologischen Darstellungen. Doch was die Portraitkunst anbelangt, konnte ihm niemand das Wasser reichen, außer vielleicht die großen englischen Portraitmaler des 18. Jahrhunderts, die ihn sich zum Vorbild nahmen.
