The Magnificent Art Collection of Dr Lillian Malcove Consists of 513 pieces: paintings, drawings, furniture, icons, manuscripts, and textiles, as well as works in terracotta, glass, bronze, stone, enamel, ivory, silver, and gold. They represent a vast range of art history, from prehistory to the twentieth century, including Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and western medieval works, and even a few pieces from the Far East. Dr Malcove, a psychoanalyst in New York, bequeathed the collection to the University of Toronto so that it might be used in teaching. It is housed in the University of Toronto Art Centre. This catalogue was initially produced in conjunction with the first exhibit of the collection, presented at the University of Toronto in two parts, late in 1985 and early in 1986. Each piece is illustrated in the catalogue, and this new paperback edition features eight pages of colour photographs. Extensive descriptions, identifying and evaluating the objects, have been provided by scholars who represent diverse areas of expertise in art and archaeology. Also included are five brief memoirs by friends of Dr Malcove. The catalogue stands as a permanent record of an extraordinary collection and a unique perspective on art from a variety of cultures throughout history. 422p. illus.. 1st Can Ed.. Softcover. New.

A beautifully illustrated guide to the glorious Byzantine mosaics of the Church of the Holy Savior in Chora ( now called the The Kariye Museum "The Kariye {Chora} Museum, in which we regard the mosaics with a deep sense of admiration, is situated in the Edirnekapi quarter of Istanbul. The name Kariye id derived from the Greek word "Chora" which means land, country, a suburban area, as well as countryside. The Monastery of Chora was thus named, as it lied outside of the city wallas built by the Emperor Constantine. Although the monastery lied within the walls built by the Emperor Theodosius in 413 A.D., its name still remained unchanged and it was referred to as the Chora. During the reign of Emperor Justinian, the monastery was devastated by an earthquake on October 6, 557. The Emperior had then rebuilt the monastery as a basilica. The monastery was again in ruins in the VIII. Century ad it was restored again in 843 A.D. After that, the history of the Chora Monastery lies in profound darkness until the 11th Century." 155p.lllus.. French Wraps. As New. Illus. by Translator Uluer Bilgen.
