This revised edition of John Griffiths Pedley's 1993 survey covers 3,000 years of Greek history with nearly 400 illustrations and an authoritative text that centers on material culture, especially pottery, statuary, and architecture. Greek Art and Archaeology incorporates recent scholarship on matters such as influences from the Near East and the spread of Greek ideas to other parts of the Mediterranean. Of special interest is Pedley's building-by-building history of the Parthenon, including a useful survey of its metopes and friezes. He also offers well-considered stylistic notes on familiar objects, such as the Laocoön group and the Nike of Samothrace.From the Publisher:
Esteemed author John Pedley presents the major categories of Greek art and architecture in chronological order from the beginning of the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic period. The text explores architecture, sculpture, vasepainting, wallpainting, and metalwork, blending factual information with scholarly interpretation and the latest archaeological discoveries. It begins with an Introduction that describes the scope of the book and the history of the retrieval of the monuments and materials of antiquity. Three following chapters cover the Greek Bronze Age, and then seven chapters address the historical periods from 1100 BC to 31 BC.
