About This Item

E-071: The Warburg Institute / E. J. Brill. Very Good. 1969. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Hardcover. 4to. The Warburg Institute / E. J. Brill. 1969. 203 pgs. Illustrated with 114 Black and White Plates. First Edition/First Printing. Bound in grey buckram cloth boards. Boards have shelf-wear present to the extremities (soil present to the board edges). No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks. Binding tight and solid. That the discovery of the vault decorations of Nero's Domus Aurea was a major catalyst in the development of Renaissance wall and ceiling painting has been a commonplace since the time of Vasari. Yet until the publication of Mme. Dacos's comprehensive volume, anticipted by her articles of the last decade, we had no very precise notion of what was known of the Neronian frescoes or when and how they were influential. Previous attempts to investigate the subject have been archaeological in emphasis' or fragmentary. The Domus Aurea (Latin, "Golden House") was a large landscaped portico villa built by the Emperor Nero in the heart of ancient Rome, after the great fire in 64 AD had cleared away the aristocratic dwellings on the slopes of the Palatine Hill. E-071; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 203 pages .
