A Shorter History of Greek Art
First published in 1981, this is the shorter work of the two volume set A History of Greek Art, intended for a general readership. The abbreviation has been achieved by the selection of fewer objects for discussion rather than by a more summary treatment and the particular qualities of the larger History have been preserved.
