Widely accepted as a standard introduction to the study of Greek art, in which the beginnings of Western art are found. Mr. Boardman takes a fresh look at his 1964 text in the light of recent discoveries. Included are significance of symbolism in Greek art, especially in the Archaic period, and on the role of the Classical nude. Mr. Boardman presents it as a live and changing subject, to be enjoyed in its full variety and not only in its better known masterpieces.
