Extensively illustrated and clearly written to be accessible to readers, this book examines the major categories of Greek architecture, sculpture, vasepainting, wallpainting, and metalwork in an historical, social, and archaeological context.

Focusing on form, function, and history of style, this book explores art and artifacts chronologically from the Early Bronze through the Hellenistic eras (ca. 3000 to ca. 30 BC) -- and by medium. Throughout, it blends factual information with stimulating interpretation and juxtaposes long-standing notions with the latest archaeological discoveries and hypotheses.
