Τhis research, presented in two parts, examines 19th century funerary art in Greek Cemeteries and specifically relief sculptures. Monuments that were studied date back from 1855 to the first decade of the 20th century, when Neoclassicism ceased to be the predominant form in Greek funerary art. Since Renaissance relief sculpture was considered equal to Painting. Since Painting can be narrative thus relief sculpture can be narrative too. Neoclassical 19th century tomb relief sculpture is considered a narrative optical form of the way Greece, like the rest of Europe, narrated death and immortality. Αll forms of tomb relief sculptures (Genius, wiping figures etc., as well as relief crosses, attributes, letters and numbers), were examined under the same inquiry: to find the answer to the question what monuments “say” and how they transmit their optical message to the viewer. This enquiry examines the way relief sculptures convey their message about memory and posthumous fame of the virtuous, righteous, self made 19the century citizen. In order to examine the way this particular sculptural form addresses to the viewer, two categories of common tomb relief sculptures characteristics are analyzed: morphological and narrative characteristics. On examining the tomb relief sculptures it is noticeable that more carved forms are present: Figurative forms as well as words (names and scriptures) and numbers (dates of birth and death). The marble plate that the relief is carved upon was thus considered as a multimodality “text” that was to be read as an optical “text”. In order to be studied we searched among the Narratology tools. A sufficient number of such tools were applied from texts to the examined relief sculptures giving proof to our assumption that the tomb relief sculpture can be considered as a form of visual narration.The conclusions of this research are as follows: The tomb relief sculpture acts like a language of communication by the stability of its form characteristics and by its address to the viewer technics. It’s Neoclassical morphology address the viewer conditioning him/her to “read” just one message, the one that the sculpture organizes for him to comprehend. The viewer has no space for personal interpretation. As an intentional form of art, tomb relief sculptures impose one view and one interpretation: the deceased was a worthy person to remember and stands as an example for the living. As intentional works of art, relief sculptures surpass their purpose’s functionality and shifts the viewers attention away from death and towards aesthetic pleasure.In the second volume of this research are presented the monuments that were studied. 196 monuments from 10 cemeteries in as much Greek cities: Νaxos island (6 monuments), Messologi (7 monuments), Τinos island (13 monuments), Keffallonia island (14 monuments), Patras (15 monuments), Nafplion (15 monuments), Kalamata (16 monuments), Syros island (17 monuments), Peiraius (22 monuments) and Athens (71 monuments).All photographs and sketches presented in this research…
