A Handbook of Greek Art : A Survey of the Visual Arts of Ancient Greece Paperback

Description

Gisela Richter's classic book, first published in 1959, is the indispensable introduction to the study of Greek art: clear, factual, authoritative, and at the same time inspired and sensitive in its understanding and appreciation of the masterpieces it discusses.

Lucidly arranged according to subject matter, the richly illustrated text covers architecture, large sculptures, statuettes, paintings and mosaics, gems, coins, jewellery, pottery and vase painting, furniture, textiles, glass, ornament and epigraphy.

A companion volume, A Handbook of Roman Art, is available from Phaidon.
