Milleker, Elizabeth J. (ed.).
The Year One. Art of the Ancient World, East and West.

Yale University Press: 2000.

"Artworks of astonishing variety were being created in far-flung regions of the world in the Year One. In Europe, Celtic peoples excelled in intricate metalwork, and in Egypt a unique hybrid of Greco-Roman and age-old Egyptian styles predominated. East of the Mediterranean, Palmyra, Petra, the kingdoms of southern Arabia, and the mighty Parthian Empire produced a wide range of sculpture, ceramics, and precious metal objects, while in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India, a traveler would have discovered the eclectic arts of the Kushan Empire, where early Buddhist art incorporated occasional influences from Greece and Rome. Discussed here and seen in 149 color photographs are works from all these societies and also from China, Korea, Japan, and Mesoamerica."

Hardcover. 9"x11.5", 220 pages, color illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.
