The sudden appearance of figurative wall-paintings in Crete at the beginning of the neopalatial period has been the subject of various theories, including the consequence of Aegyptian influence (Doumas), a movement in skilled craftsmanship from pottery to wall-paintings (Boulotis), or the new role of pictorial art as a form of political propaganda (Gates). These theories stress different aspects which could even be interrelated and operating in a structural relationship. In particular, the possibility of a more detailed reconstruction of the process can be obtained by looking, not only at the initial (protopalatial) and final (LM I) phases of the period, but also at the intermediate phases.

Abstract

The sudden appearance of figurative wall-paintings in Crete at the beginning of the neopalatial period has been the subject of various theories, including the consequence of Aegyptian influence (Doumas), a movement in skilled craftsmanship from pottery to wall-paintings (Boulotis), or the new role of pictorial art as a form of political propaganda (Gates). These theories stress different aspects which could even be interrelated and operating in a structural relationship. In particular, the possibility of a more detailed reconstruction of the process can be obtained by looking, not only at the initial (protopalatial) and final (LM I) phases of the period, but also at the intermediate phases.
