From Nineveh to New York: The Strange Story of the Assyrian Reliefs in the Metropolitan Museum & the Hidden Masterpiece at Canford School
The strange story of the Assyrian Reliefs in the Metropolitan Museum and the Hidden Masterpiece at Canford School. This volume includes previously unpublished photographs, illustrations from rare nineteenth century sources, and passages from the diary of Lady Charlotte Guest (cousin of Austen Henry Layard). With an interesting discussion of the English reception of Ninevite art, and the Assyrian Revival, the book continues with the events surrounding the rediscovery of the Ninevah Porch and the last of Layard's sculptures recently sold at auction.
