From front jacket flap] Early Cycladic Art in North American Collection documents the first exhibition devoted entirely to Early Cycladic figures and vessels from North American museums and private collections. The catalogue of the exhibition, organized by the Department of Ancient Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, presents standing and reclining figures, harpists, collared jars, beakers, bowls, palettes, and pyxides that have been carefully selected from over 60 widely scattered collections. Carved on the islands known as the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, these fragile and aged objects of marble date between 3200 and 2200 B.C. The figures and vessels, catalogued in 147 entries by Pat Getz-Preziosi, are arranged by type in approximate chronological order, so that the nuances and refinements of their forms can be traced through generations of artists working within a traditional repertoire. Essays on the history and development of Early Cycladic sculpture by Pat Getz-Preziosi, the archaeology and geography of the Cyclades by Jack L. Davis, and the materials and techniques of Early Cycladic sculptors by Elizabeth Oustinoff enhance the meaning of the objects by locating them in a culture that existed over four millennia ago. The catalogue offers a rare opportunity to explore the beauty and interrelationships of Early Cycladic sculpture; it includes multiple views of the figures and vessels in black-andwhite photographs, colorplates that ÑÂÐ°Ñâ ¬ÑË Ð³Ðµ the quality of marble and traces of original paint, and detailed line drawings, charts, and maps.
