Summary and Info
Within the last fifty years the archaic sculpture of Boeotia has been thesubject of a number of published studies. At least three separate analyses ofthe preserved marble statues have been made, needless to say with threequite disparate results. Holleaux, in his publication in the Bulletin de correspondencehellenique of the sculpture found at Mt. Pt oös, attempted to cassify the material and explain his newly found Theban school. Deonna, inLes Apollons. archaiques, under a separate heading for Boeotia, analyzed agroup of kouroi which, for various reasons, he considered as products of localmanufacture. Most recently Lullies, in the Jahrbuch for 1936, published anarticle of the most modern kind of stylistic criticism in which he endeavored,by sheer force of critical insight, to walk safely along even the treacherouspaths which divide the local imitation from the foreign model in cases of themost tenuous differentiation. Although the most brief, Lullies' treatment ofthe material is also the most inclusive of the three. It embraces nearly all ofthe objects that had been by others considered Boeotian, as well as the greaterpart of those found in Boeotia which his predecessors had believed to be importedfrom abroad. Of him alone it might be said that he tended to slightthe problems of national authorship in an endeavor to tre~t all the materialwhich has been related to Boeotia. However, Lullies' discussion is still insubstance an attempt to analyze a supposed local sch ool, to define principlesof attribution so fully as to be able to distinguish between the Boeotian pupiland his Attic master.
