Greek Vase: Lectures
John Davison Beazley is responsible for making the study of Athenian vase-paintings a branch of art history. His lists of artists and groups, published in great volumes and widely circulated, have become standard reference books; but his lectures have never been available to a wide audience. The eight lectures collected here are fully illustrated and include a lively account of 6th-century B.C. Athenian vase-painting, a survey of peculiarly Athenian vase forms, a look at the historical, literary, and visual evidence for the art form, and a concluding lecture which gives timeless advice to the young.
