Item description for The Pediments of the Parthenon (Monumenta Graeca Et Romana , No 7) by Olga Palagia...

This is currently the only a comprehensive account in English of the Parthenon pediments, and the first in any language since 1963. It represents an up-to-date introduction to their study and includes new proposals for the restoration of the missing parts and the question of Roman repairs. This study is based upon autopsy and considers the evidence of technical details. It questions the attribution of certain familiar pieces and offers new suggestions for restoring the east pediment. All sculptures are illustrated, some with photographs taken especially for this book, and there are drawings of the restorations proposed by the author. The first chapter serves as a general introduction to the study of the pediments. It includes an assessment of the documentation and a summary of stylistic and technical characteristics of the sculptures. Capters two and three treat each pediment separately. The discussion of individual sculptures is incorporated in a continuous narrative which sets them within the context of the overall composition.
