The Art And Archaeology Of Ancient Greece

The Art And Archaeology Of Ancient Greece

The Art and Archeology of Ancient Greece is an introductory-level textbook for students with little or no background in ancient art. Arranged chronologically in broad swathes of time, from the Bronze and Iron Ages through the Geometric, Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, and concluding with the Roman conquest of the Greek world, the textbook focuses on Greek art but also incorporates Near Eastern, Etruscan, and Roman objects. Judith M. Barringer examines a variety of media, analyzing marble and bronze sculpture, public architecture, and vase painting, as well as coins, domestic architecture, mosaics, terracotta figurines and reliefs, jewelry, and wall painting. This book adopts an approach that considers objects and monuments within their cultural contexts. * More than 500 illustrations, with over 400 in color and 13 maps, including specially commissioned photographs, maps, plans, and reconstructions * Includes text boxes, chapter summaries and timelines, and detailed glossary * Looks at Greek art from perspectives of both art history and archaeology, giving students an understanding of the historical and everyday context of art objects

Greek Art And Archaeology

Greek Art And Archaeology

John Griffiths Pedley's Greek Art and Archaeology quickly established itself as the most authoritative and comprehensive general survey of Greek art when it was first published in 1993. It ranges over 3,000 years of civilization in the Aegean and Greek worlds, from the earliest evidence of Bronze Age cultures in the third millennium B.C. to the very end of the Hellenistic period in Rome.This Second Edition significantly expands the discussion of Hellenistic art and architecture. Many important archaeological discoveries of the last six years -- on the Greek mainland, at Troy, and at sites of Greek colonization -- which have altered old interpretations of what happened at the dawn of Western civilization, are incorporated. Throughout, the text is extensively illustrated with outstanding color and black-and-white photographs. Virtually every object mentioned is represented with an illustration and in many cases a plan or diagram.

Greek Art Fifth World Of Art

Greek Art Fifth World Of Art

“One of the very best short histories of Greek Art.” — The Financial Times John Boardman, one of the best known and acknowledged scholars of the classical Greek world, has updated his definitive survey of its arts, the most influential and widely known historic artistic tradition of the Old World. In the twenty years since the last edition was released, valuable evidence has come to light which has dramatically enhanced our understanding of the arts of ancient Greece and their influence. It is now known that Greek artists completed their stone sculptures with realistic color, as well as working with a wealth of other materials. This proves that the romantic notion of an age of classic, pure white marble is a Renaissance construction which has persisted to the present day. The work of individual artists, as well as schools of artists, can be identified, creating a clearer picture than ever before of how art and artistic traditions traveled throughout the Greek world and beyond it. Boardman encourages the reader to consider the masterpieces that have been preserved in their original context. He weaves into his discussion of the arts insights into the society that produced them. Illustrated in full color throughout for the first time, this fifth edition demonstrates yet more vividly the artistic aims and achievements of ancient Greece.
