Greek Sculpture: Function, Materials, and Techniques in the Archaic and Classical Periodsby Olga Palagia
Pub. Date: 09/30/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
During the sixth and fifth centuries BC, Greek sculpture developed into a fine art. With the human figure as its main subject, artists worked to represent it in increasingly natural terms. This book explores the material aspects of Greek sculpture at a pivotal phase in its evolution. Considering typologies and function, an international team of experts traces the development of technical characteristics of marble and bronze sculpture, the choice of particular marbles in different areas, and the types of monuments that were created on the Greek mainland, the islands and the west coast of Asia.
