Athenian Black Figure Vases: A Handbook

by

Athenian Black Figure Vases: A Handbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Athenian black figure vases bear the work of consummate artists like Exekias, who depicted on them scenes of myth and everyday life that deepen our knowledge and understanding of Greek antiquity. John Boardman enables the reader to study the many aspects of the vases, and to grasp the essential style of a painter or group of painters, without having to consult a number of expensive, and not always easily accessible, publications. A final section is devoted to the mythological scenes and other decorative features of the vases.

Synopsis:

"Will undoubtedly become a standard work of reference."--

Description:

1325726 Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-241) and indexes.

About the Author

John Boardman, Lincoln Professor Emeritus of Classical Archaeology and Art at Oxford University, has written widely on the art and archaeology of ancient Greece. His previous books include The Greeks Overseas, The History of Greek Vases, The World of Ancient Art, and others.
