"One of the very best short histories of Greek art."―Financial TimesFirst published in the early 1960s, this history of Greek art has been enlarged and rewritten. It takes into account new finds as well as new ideas and attitudes to the subject, and emphasizes that Greek art should be seen in its proper context, not that of galleries and museums. 302 illustrations, 73 in color

John Boardman, Lincoln Professor Emeritus of Classical Archaeology and Art at Oxford University, has written widely on the art and archaeology of ancient Greece. His previous books include The Greeks Overseas, The History of Greek Vases, The World of Ancient Art, and others.From 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
