  • Forged, Copied or Misunderstood' The Carlsberg Diadumenos Revisited

    • Authors: Fredrik Engel Møller
      Abstract: The so-called Diadumenos Carlsberg, a marble statue at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, was bought by Carl Jacobsen in 1895 as an original ancient artwork inspired by the work of Polykleitos. A year later it was denounced as a modern forgery, and it has subsequently been hidden away in the study collection at the museum. Yet, it may still provide insights into how antiquity is perceived, both in the present and at the time of its acquisition. The story behind its purchase as a copy of a masterwork of Polykleitos, and the reasoning behind its dismissal as a modern fake, may show us how connoisseurs understood and perceived antiquity through a modern lens, and how contemporary artists have influenced perceptions of their ancient predecessors.

  • CLARA Review: Nava Sevilla-Sadeh, 2022: The Secrets of Classical Beauty.
           Exploring Greek Aesthetics In Art And Thought. Simple Story Digital

    • Authors: Maria Chidiroglou
      Abstract: The book by Dr. Nava Sevilla-Sadeh, titled The Secrets of Classical Beauty: Exploring Greek Aesthetics In Art and Thought, is a well-researched, rich and interesting study of the concept and intrinsic value of Classical Greek beauty, as expressed in art and thought. Dr. Nava Sevilla-Sadeh is an art researcher, curator and adjunct Department Member at the Tel Aviv University. The subject of ancient Greek Classical beauty has been variously analysed in previous studies, yet this recent book by Nava Sevilla-Sadeh, published in 2022, bears a new and refreshing approach to the matter by combining ancient Greek literary references and commentary on ancient artefacts with comparanda of modern times and a critical exploration of Classical Greek and contemporary aesthetics.
