Overview

Like no other survey of the subject, Greek Art and Archaeology has a truly complete range of coverage. Spanning three thousand years, the text and illustrations follow developments in architecture, sculpture, vase painting, and wall painting as they evolve from their earliest appearances in Bronze Age and Aegean cultures to their elaborated and expressive forms in the Hellenistic age, just before the birth of Christ. This second edition integrates all the latest major archaeological discoveries, including the wreckage of a Greek trading vessel raised from the sea near Uluburun, Turkey. And its coverage of Hellenistic art is significantly expanded over that of the first edition. In chapter after chapter, Pedley's lucid narrative is blended with stimulating interpretation, new pictures, and more useful architectural plans and diagrams to produce the most approachable yet authoritative introduction to Greek art and architecture available today.
