Abstract and Keywords
Through an exploration of sculptures produced on the Iberian peninsula between the end of the third century BC and the second century AD and using references to pieces from the south of France, this chapter deals with a series of questions relevant to our understanding of the arts of the Roman provinces. How are the tensions between the local, provincial, and imperial reflected in sculpture? What are the main differences between the sculpture of cultural contact produced right after the conquest and that of the early empire? The chapter also considers questions such as the context in which the statues were displayed, the possible origin of the sculptors and their clients, the selection and circulation of raw materials, the role of local workshops, the dissemination of official or Italic models, and the interrelation between the north of Hispania Citerior and Narbonensis.
