  Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Jean Bussière and Birgitta Lindros Wohl

In the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum are more than six hundred ancient lamps that span the sixth century BCE to the seventh century CE, most from the Roman Imperial period and largely created in Asia Minor or North Africa. These lamps have much to reveal about life, religion, pottery, and trade in the ancient Graeco-Roman world. Most of the Museum's lamps have never before been published, and this extensive typological catalogue will thus be an invaluable scholarly resource for art historians, archaeologists, and those interested in the ancient world.

  Ancient Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Ancient Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Maria Lucia Ferruzza

In the ancient world, terracotta sculpture was ubiquitous. Readily available and economical—unlike stone suitable for carving—clay allowed artisans to craft figures of remarkable variety and expressiveness. Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily attest to the prolific coroplastic workshops that supplied sacred and decorative images for sanctuaries, settlements, and cemeteries. Sixty terracottas are investigated here by noted scholar Maria Lucia Ferruzza, comprising a selection of significant types from the Getty's larger collection—life-size sculptures, statuettes, heads and busts, altars, and decorative appliqués.

  Roman Mosaics in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Roman Mosaics in the J. Paul Getty Museum

Alexis Belis

The mosaics in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum span the second through the sixth centuries CE and reveal the diversity of compositions found throughout the Roman Empire during this period. Elaborate floors of stone and glass tesserae transformed private dwellings and public buildings alike into spectacular settings of vibrant color, figural imagery, and geometric design. Scenes from mythology, nature, daily life, and spectacles in the arena enlivened interior spaces and reflected the cultural ambitions of wealthy patrons. This online catalogue documents all of the mosaics in the Getty Museum's collection, presenting their artistry in new color photography as well as the contexts of their discovery and excavation across Rome's expanding empire—from its center in Italy to provinces in southern Gaul, North Africa, and ancient Syria.
