• On the Fascination of Objects: Greek and Etruscan Art in the Shefton Collection

    The Shefton Collection in Newcastle upon Tyne contains a fine array of Greek and Etruscan objects and takes its name from its founder Professor Brian Shefton (1919 – 2012). In spite of the importance of this collection it has not been widely published and remains something of a hidden gem. Brian Shefton was an insightful collector, as well as a distinguished scholar of Greek and Etruscan archaeology, and the 14 papers presented here reflect the broad scope of the collection; ranging across pottery, jewelery, terracottas and metalwork. The contributions, written by leading experts in the field, focus on specific objects or groups of objects in the Collection, providing new interpretations and bringing previously unpublished items to light. The history of the Shefton Collection is explored. Together these contributions provide a tribute to a remarkable individual who made a substantial and notable contribution to his discipline.

  • Plate 25 from the Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Honorable William Hamilton

    William Hamilton Illustrated sheet from Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities from the Cabinet of the Honorable William Hamilton... Naples: 1766-1767 Aquatint engraving in black and terra-cotta ink 24 1/2" x 34 1/2" framed Sir William Hamilton was sent to Naples in 1764 as chief British envoy to the Bourbon King Ferdinand IV. Inspired by the cultural heritage of Italy, Hamilton developed a great passion for archaeology and the study of antiquities, and soon embarked on a project to publish illustrations of the objects that so fascinated him. Ferdinand IV, as official guardian of the treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum, encouraged the wealthy gentlemen of his kingdom to form private "cabinets" of antiquities. Some of these gentlemen hired their own workmen, while others bought from scavengers and displayed, or resold, a rich harvest of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, metalwork and other artifacts. Hamilton assembled just such a collection, and then chose the finest examples of excavated pottery art for his publication. Other objects came from the Royal Collection, lent generously by the Ferdinand IV. Hamilton was driven in his project by one particular ambition: he wanted to change completely and indelibly the taste of Europe, to ".annihilate those Gothic forms which h...

  • Etruscan Places: “Money poisons you when you've got it, and starves you when you haven't.”

    For many of us DH Lawrence was a schoolboy hero. Who can forget sniggering in class at the mention of ‘Women In Love’ or ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’? Lawrence was a talented if nomadic writer whose novels were passionately received, suppressed at times and generally at odds with Establishment values. This of course did not deter him. At his death in 1930 at the young age of 44 he was more often thought of as a pornographer but in the ensuing years he has come to be more rightly regarded as one of the most imaginative writers these shores have produced. As well as his novels he was also a masterful poet (he wrote over 800 of them), a travel writer as well as an author of many classic short stories. Here we publish his travel writings ‘Etruscan Places’. Once again Lawrence shows his hand as a brilliant writer. Delving into the landscapes and peeling back the layers to reveal the inner heart.

References: Etruscan civilization (/ɨˈtrʌskən/) is the modern name given to a civilization of ancient Italy in the area corresponding roughly to Tuscany, western Umbria, and northern Lazio. The ancient Romans called its creators the Tusci or Etrusci. Their Roman name is the origin of the terms Tuscany, which refers to their heartland, and Etruria, which can refer to their wider region. In Attic Greek, the Etruscans were known as Τυρρηνοὶ (Tyrrhēnoi), earlier Tyrsenoi, from which the Romans derived the names Tyrrhēni (Etruscans), Tyrrhēnia (Etruria), and Mare Tyrrhēnum (Tyrrhenian Sea).The Etruscans called themselves Rasenna, which was syncopated to Rasna or Raśna,[3] earlier T'rasena whence comes the Roman and Greek names, prompting some to associate them with the Egyptian Tere...

  • Etruscan Man with Hat Thin Statue, Arte Etrvska Collection

    Etruscan Bronze Figures Inspired by the large Greek statues of nude men (kouroi) and clothed women (korai), a flourishing tradition developed in Etruria. However, in contrast to the Greeks, the Etruscans did not seek to perfectly represent the human body. They emphasized the appearance of their sculptures in an almost expressionistic way.
