"The period in Greek art that falls between the destruction of Athens by the Persians and the building of the Parthenon is the focus of this book. In this brief span between 480 and 450 B.C., major artists such as Kalamis and Myron were at work; and major monuments, such as the sculptures of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, were produced. The style that emerged, called the Severe style, is memorable for its starkness, for massiveness of form, and for eloquence of outline. With its experiments in asymmetry, its interest in emotion, and its novel focus on characterization, it is a style in revolt against the archaic tradition." (dj). (Inventory #: 156297)
