Athenian Black Figure Vases (74 Edition)by John Boardman
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the 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.
"Will undoubtedly become a standard work of reference."--Journal of Hellenic Studies
