The idealizing narrative tradition in archaic and classical Greek art

Winfred van de Put UGent (2014) AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ARCHAEOLOGY.
abstract
Studies like Giuliani 2003 and Stansbury-O'Donnell 1999 show a renewed interest in the way Archaic and Classical Greeks tell stories in pictures. These views are analyzed and the core terms defined; the limitative view of Giuliani is rejected. A basic narratological analytical approach is shared with Stansbury-O'Donnell. The concept of idealization, a commonplace in the study of style, proportion and figure characterization, is applied to the narrative conventions, leading to a much simpler understanding of the principles governing Greek narrative images. Within the idealizing narrative framework, I define a distinction between character-centered and narrative-centered images, which is applied to the imagery of white-ground lekythoi.
