A History of Greek Art

£24.99

Product description

A large scale illustrated history of Greek art from the Archaic to the Hellenistic period. Professor Robertson's treatment is chronological rather than topical; he presents changes in the different branches of representational art as aspects of a single historical developement, concentrating on the genuinely Greek and markedly different artistic tradition whose first impulse appears at about 1000 BC and that atrophies eventually in the first century BCE. Complete in two volumes, with Volume 2 containing notes and black and white illustrations relating to the text in Volume i.

Condition: As ex-library books both volumes bear stickers on the spine of the dust jacket and various stamps on the fly leaf and back pastedown. In addition the rear fly leaf in Volume 2 is torn. The textblocks are crisp and clean and the bindings sound.
