"An interpretative history of Greek art during the Hellenistic period -- that is, from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. to the establishment of the Roman Empire at the end of the first century B.C. -- which also explores ways in which that art is an expression of the cultural experience and aspirations of the Hellenistic age. It presents a selective history of the formal development of Hellenistic art as exemplified in sculpture, painting, mosaics, architecture and the decorative arts, emphasising what was new and distinctive about the art, and focusing on genres, schools and styles that were of particular importance. the introduction analyses some typical aspects of the intellectual and social climate of this period which played a role in shaping its art." (back cover of softcover edition) In addition to the captivating text, there are extensively referenced notes, a bibliography and extensive index. (Inventory #: 155972)
