Greek Art A&i (Art & Ideas)

by

Greek Art A&i (Art & Ideas) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nigel Spivey sets the formation of the classical style in its proper historical context. He considers how Greek art was inextricably bound up with the social, religious, philosophical and political factors of the period and explains the art not only in terms of those who commissioned and created it, but also with reference to the archaeology of the places which hosted it.

Book News Annotation:

The series offers authoritative, yet accessible surveys, each volume focusing on a region's art, a particular period or style of Western art, or a major figure. This account includes consideration of how Greek art was inextricably bound up with the political, religious, philosophical, and social circumstances of the period. The author draws on his first-hand experience of Greek archaeological sites and covers the full range of Greek art--sculpture, pottery, architecture, metalwork, wall-paintings. An attractive book, generously illustrated, at a good price. Distributed by Chronicle Books.
