Getz-Gentle, Pat.
Ancient Art of the Cyclades.

Katonah Museum of Art: 2006.

"This exhibition celebrates the much-admired works of art created during the third millennium B.C. by craftsmen of the Cycladic islands of the Aegean Sea. Early Cycladic objects, once viewed as archaeological curiosities, are today a source of widespread fascination and appeal. Their simple lines and spare elegance inspired such modern artists as Brancusi, Modigliani, and Picasso. Knowledge of Cycladic civilization has been fathomed through its artifacts, since there was no written language to help archaeologists. Curator Dr. Pat Getz-Gentle, an author and scholar who has devoted her professional life to the field, has written the essay for the comprehensive catalogue in which she puts forth the latest findings and her own theories on Early Cycladic culture".

Softcover. 8.5"x11", 64 pages, color and black & white illustrations. Fine.
