Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The author provides a complete history of ancient Greek painting, from the earliest examples in Crete, Thera, and Mycenae to those of the Classical Greek and Roman periods. Through a variety of examples, he shows how these ancient works shaped later ones. Among the works reproduced here are wall paintings from Knossos, Thera, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Oplontis; vases from the Mycenaean through to the Classical period; reliefs from the Parthenon; and mosaics from Pompeii and Delos. The book also features paintings inspired by antique models in later centuries, by such artists as Mantegna, Titian, Durer, Raphael, Rembrandt, and Rubens.
