"One of the very best short histories of Greek art."—Financial Times

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. Highly recommended for all collections.Mary Morgan Smith, Northland P.L., Pittsburgh
