Overview

This book provides an authoritative and readable guide to the history of Greek art. It is a considerably enlarged and rewritten version of a work that has served hundreds of thousands in many languages since the early '60s. As the author says, 'This edition is different in that it takes into account new finds as well as new ideas and attitudes to the subject... I have attempted here to place Greek art back into Greece and away from galleries and art books, to try to recapture what it meant to its makers and viewers, and so better value what it has meant to later artists in the western world. The original intentions and the way these masterpieces are viewed today are often leagues apart. But foremost my aim has been to explain what Greek art looks like, how to look at it, how to enjoy it as something beyond the tourist's Parthenon or a broken museum marble, as part of our common heritage.'

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Boardman's Greek Art was first published in 1964. It was an excellent introduction to the field and a popular text for many college classes. After 30 years (and a couple of revisions), the new edition is, if possible, even better than its predecessors. Rather than just rehash old research, the author includes new discoveries and revises his conclusions about many aspects of the field. Particularly interesting and enlightening is his ability to remove 'Greek art...from the traditional art book and gallery' and focus on what the works meant to their makers and viewers and, consequently, to later artists. This is a classic in the field made even more readable and useful than before. -- Mary Morgan Smith, Northland Public Library, Pittsburgh
