Three or four times over the past month (!) I’ve been confronted with the need to track down literature on the historical development of archaeological illustration. This is a research topic that I can find only a handful of papers on, and I’m wondering now if it is just a seriously understudied subject matter (which, to some extent, I suspect it is) or if I’m simply not looking in the right places for relevant texts. Those that repeatedly pop up in my literature review include Piggott’s (1978) Antiquity Depicted, Bradley’s (1997) article in The Cultural Life of Images, Lewuillon’s (2002) article in Antiquity, and several others (by Piggott, Lucas, Smiles, Dixon, etc.) scattered around in various journals and edited volumes.
I’d love to hear of other published or unpublished literature on the subject. References to in-progress work would also be much appreciated.
