Ancient Bronzes: A Guide to the Yale Collection

Matthew M. McCarty

Ancient Bronzes provides a brief introduction to this area of the Yale University Art Gallery’s collection. The Gallery’s extensive collection of small, ancient bronzes spans Greece and Rome from the eighth century b.c. to the fourth century a.d. and offers a window into the daily life of ancient peoples, particularly with regard to the rituals of domestic religion and the home. Author Matthew M. McCarty provides an in-depth analysis of style and technique and places the objects within their broader historical, social, religious, and political contexts. McCarty highlights religious and cult objects while also touching upon more utilitarian objects.
