Reviews

This volume on the marbles at Wilton House forms an impressive addition to the literature on the privately owned collections of antiquities in Britain. - Clare Hornsby, Journal of the History of Collections (2021)
This impressive book is the first comprehensive publication of the sculptures assembled in the early eighteenth century at Wilton House near Salisbury in Wiltshire by Thomas Herbert (1656-1733), eighth Earl of Pembroke... This book is a must for anyone interested in classical art and its subsequent artistic history, interpretation, and reception. - Mark Merrony, Antiqvvs, Issue 9, Winter 2021/22

Attentive readers will glean that a number of pieces sold off in the last century have returned to Wilton, a poi gnant demonstration of the current generation's devo tion to preserving the family's important classical legacy. Stewart, too, advances this effort; his up-to-date, infor mative catalogue admirably succeeds in introducing the 150 or so sculptures on view at Wilton today to a schol arly audience. His work clears away the many cobwebs that have entangled the reception of Wilton's antiquities and lays a solid foundation for future investigations. - Elizabeth Bartman (2022): American Journal of Archaeology
