Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum
Project Director: Dr Thomas Mannack
There is a wide spread of material as part of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum research project. Bronze Age Greek, Cypriot, local Italian, Etruscan, and the local styles of the Archaic Greek city-states all appear beside the more familiar Athenian black and red figure. The large format allows all pieces to be fully illustrated, and there are profile drawings of the more interesting shapes, as an aid to the study of potting as well as painting. There is a full commentary on each vase.
