The Cambridge History of Painting in the Classical World, Hardback Book

The Cambridge History of Painting in the Classical World Hardback

Edited by Jerome Jordan Pollitt


Painting was one of the major achievements of the Classical world.

This book examines the development of mural and panel painting in the Classical world from the earliest Minoan and Cycladic frescoes of the Aegean Bronze Age to late Roman painting, from approximately 1800 BC to AD 400.

It provides a comprehensive study of major monuments, including exciting new material that has been discovered in recent years and has transformed the field.

It also offers a critical overview of scholarly debates and controversies on aspects of style, iconography, technique and cultural context.

This volume provides an up-to-date and much-needed overview of the monuments that are now known and of the ideas that have been generated about them.
