Sample text

Such an appeal is not likely to wane, but parameters on the conclusions to be derived from the comparison are now more strictly drawn. For archaeologists not reared on a detailed study of the classical world in the traditional way of language and literature, the questions to be asked and answered are different. Classicists look more to the immediate foreground, with its accent on individuals and historical development; archaeologists have their eyes fixed more firmly on the slow-moving background.

In order to understand why private collectors and museums are willing, not to say eager, to pay so much for a single vase, it is necessary to look at the history of the interest in Greek painted pottery (Cook 1972: 287-327) - whether we are looking for instances of academic curiosity or possessive greed, aesthetic pleasure or social cachet. It was not always so, and we need to see at what point in time the change took place, when Greek vases became collectors' items and when they engaged the interest of academics.

Corinthian pottery, which had been influential in forming the Athenian style but by the sixth century had started to imitate Athenian (Amyx 1988: 539-40), is still produced in good numbers, if not good quality, in the first half of the sixth century but becomes less and less important outside its own boundaries, although the outline decoration continues later (Pemberton 1989a: 192-234). It is in the sixth century that Athenian pottery starts to be spread all over the Mediterranean and beyond. Athenian pottery has enjoyed a privileged position in the study of Greek pottery over the last century.
