Extensively illustrated and clearly written, this book examines the major categories of Greek architecture, sculpture, vasepainting, wallpainting, and metalwork in a historical, social, and archaeological context. It blends factual information with stimulating interpretation and juxtaposes long-standing notions with the latest archaeological discoveries and hypotheses. Focusing on form, function, and history of style, the book explores art and artifacts chronologically from the Early Bronze through the Hellenistic eras (ca. 3000 to ca. 30 BC)--and by medium. For individuals who appreciate--and want to better understand--the art and history of Greece.
