Vox ex imagine
Formen des Zusammenwirkens von Bild und ›sprechender‹ Beischrift in der antiken Flächenkunst
All written additions that are related to images are referred to as 'captions'. In ancient art, this mainly includes all kinds of names.
So-called 'speaking' captions are a special case, because they offer insight into the world of acoustics and enrich the figurative representations with the materially tangible dimension of spoken language. 'Speaking' captions not only bring images to life, but also ascribe new content to them, which could not have been conveyed in the same way without any inscription.
For the first time, this book describes the phenomenon of 'speaking' captions exclusively and in detail, taking different perspectives. Many concrete case studies illustrate how image and text can interact, especially on mosaics and wall paintings. The practical tasks of the voices in the pictures are successfully worked out, in part with the help of parallels on vases.
