The magnificent collection of ancient Greek art at the Walters Art Museum is surveyed in this catalog, spanning the Cycladic to the Hellenistic period with 75 works photographed in color. It includes such fine and historically important pieces as 4500-year-old Cycladic statues; rarely seen classical sculpture, defining ideals of the human body; diverse examples of pottery design and decoration; Roman copies of Greek sculpture nearly lost; and the gorgeous and intricate jewelry of the Olbia Treasure. Introductory essays for each period place the works in context and trace the development of artistic techniques and themes, followed by individual discussions for each piece.
