Greek Sculpture : an Exploration

This is an account of large-scale Greek sculpture from the Dark Ages to Augustus (c.1200-30 BC). Andrew Stewart not only describes and dates the sculpture but also places it in its full social and political context. He focuses on who the sculptors were, how their workshops were run, who commissioned and supported their work, and what the political, cultural, and natural settings were. The book consists of two volumes, Text and Plates, and contains more than 900 high quality illustrations and reconstructions. Also included are a glossary of Greek and Latin terms, and translations of ancient literary and epigraphical testimonies.
