9780714122601: The Warren Cup (British Museum Objects in Focus)

This is the book to accompany a special display at the British Museum, telling the unique story of this exquisitely crafted Roman silver drinking cup, engraved with erotic scenes. (Takes place between 11th May and 2nd July, 2006). Created in the first century AD, and after being condemned to an undeserved obscurity for too long, the cup shows a pair of male lovers in explicit homoerotic scenes that reflect the mores of the time and region in which the cup was created and used. The book celebrates how this important and beautiful materpiece of Roman art challenges contemporary viewers to look beyond current social and religious environments for its worthwhile appreciation. Beautifully created in a masterful way that has enabled it to survive for hundreds of years, the Warren cup is a very special recent addition to the Museum's collection that is sure to fascinate visitors for years to come.

Descrizione libro BRITISH MUSEUM PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The British Museum s acquisition of the Warren Silver Cup in 1999 caused something of a stir when it was announced to the press as a result of its price and its challengingly explicit homoerotic scenes. It was prominently illustrated in all the major daily newspapers and the reporting varied between the crudely predictable and the much more thoughtful. It featured in quiz programmes like Have I got News for You and was even the subject of cartoons. The Warren Cup is, in fact, a remarkably important masterpiece of Roman art, created in the first century AD, which has been condemned to an undeserved obscurity for too long. It s scenes reflect the mores of the time and region in which it was created and used. As such, it is a precious means for us to reach back and understand that society, but it also challenges us to look through and beyond our own contemporary social and religious environment. This book will examine the extraordinary history, both ancient and modern, that the Warren Cup has to tell. It will also attempt to set the cup in its ancient contexts - where and when it was made; where and when it was found; and by whom it was used. Codice libro della libreria AA29780714122601
