Description
Abundantly illustrated, with period engravings and reproductions of art, archival photos, or color photos on virtually every page, this book chronicles the excitement of rediscovery as works from ancient Greece and Rome began to resurface in the 18th and 19th centuries. In excavations that brought forth the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and the Elgin Marbles during this tumultuous era, argue the authors, Europe was in many ways searching for its own soul in its lost heritage. Now the adventure of discovery has been supplanted by the scientific struggle to preserve these marvels for future generations.
