Catalogue of the Sculpture in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection from the Ptolemaic Period to the Renaissance by Gary Vikan
Book DescriptionThese sculptures are not representative of any one culture or period, but they are characteristic of the Blisses' wide-ranging tastes and extraordinary connoisseurship. About a quarter of the objects are Greco-Roman in date, and nearly two-thirds of the remainder are Late Antique, predominantly limestone carvings from Early Byzantine Egypt. Sculpture from the Middle Byzantine period is very rare, making the four pieces in this collection especially significant.

Sacred and Stolen, Hardback (October 2016)
"Memoir by former Director of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore reveals what goes on behind the scenes. Shocking and comical backstories include tales of failed exhibitions, looted antiquities, fakes, and inside jobs of theft and bribery among a cast of crooked dealers, deluded collectors, and duplicitous public officials"--
From the Holy Land to Graceland, Paperback (April 2013)» View all books by Gary Vikan
Graceland is much more than a wildly popular tourist destination associated with a famous entertainer, and Elvis Presley is much more than the King of Rock 'n' Roll. This title posits that Graceland, the second-most-visited historic house in the United States, is a locus sanctus - a holy place - and Elvis is its resident saint.
