Provides a broad view of the current state and history of scholarship on the art of the ancient Near East

This ebook, A Companion to Ancient Near Eastern Art (PDF) covers the aesthetic traditions of Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Iran, and the Levant, from Neolithic times to the end of the Achaemenid Persian Empire around 330 BCE. It describes and examines the field from a variety of critical perspectives: across approaches and interpretive frameworks, materials, key explanatory concepts, and selected media and formats, and zones of interaction. This important work also addresses both traditional and emerging categories of material, intellectual perspectives, and research priorities. The ebook covers geography and chronology, medium and scale, context and setting while acknowledging the diversity of regional and cultural traditions and the uneven survival of evidence.
