Coats, Queens, and Cormorants
The articles in this volume focus on the age-old, osmotic exchange of objects and ideas between the Mediterranean West, the Levant and the vast continent of Asia. The author took an interest in the cultural impact of trade along the Silk Route before the subject became fashionable. One group of articles reflects this area of her research. The others, some of which are published here for the first time, elucidate significant works of Classical and European art.
