Item #76179 ABUNDANCE OF LIFE: Etruscan Wall Painting. Stephan Steingraber.

ABUNDANCE OF LIFE: Etruscan Wall Painting

Los Angeles: The J. Paul Getty Museum, 2006. First Edition. Hardcover. "...this book traces the stylistic and iconographic evolution of Etruscan wall paintings over the span of five hundred years and analyzes what they reveal about Etruscan daily life, religion, and funerary rites. The earliest paintings, with their colorful scenes of banquets, hunts, and athletic games, gave way, in the later tombs, to scenes that are darker in both color and content. Here Etruscan demons escort the dead on their perilous journey to Hades, while complex genealogies and magisterial insignia signify the assertion of political and social status." Folio: 328 p. with 250 color illustrations. Just a hint of edgewear; else fine in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #76179
