Notes

Summary:
The Lady of Auxerre was named after the little Museum of Auxerre, a small city in the vicinity of Paris, where, about a century ago, a Louvre curator sighted her in the vault of that museum. No documents or information of any sort were available concerning the circumstances of her arrival there. Typical, in this respect, is her wig (which could also be Egyptian) and triangular face, while her dress is of the ancient Cretan type. . The Daedalic type is characteristic rather of minor arts, almost the only type of art existing during this so-called orientalizing period of Greek art. In any case, the Auxerre lady is composed of parts which lack the unity and harmony which characterize and dominate Greek art after its emancipation.
