Instead of presenting this rich collection of works by civilisation, school or discipline, this book takes a novel approach, placing items from diverse cultures and periods side by side, creating juxtapositions that are often unexpected and invariably revealing. The works presented all touch on the eternal themes of art and range from paintings and sculptures to silverware and tapestry. The result is a thought-provoking meditation on the representation of human life since 3000 BC, from childhood to old age, encompassing moments of leisure and times of war, the totems of power and religious symbols, and our enduring love of beauty and decoration.
To follow this journey through history is to relive mankind’s quest for self-expression, his never-ending search for beauty, his need for escape through nature, and his insatiable curiosity about the world around him. Erich Lessing’s photographs and Adrien Goetz’s text take us on a voyage of initiation, a visual adventure that leads us to the very heart of the vast universe of artistic creation.
