These specially commissioned essays offer a radical and fresh appraisal of how ancient Greek art was looked at, written about and discussed in antiquity. The first section focuses on fifth-century culture, examining painted pottery, architecture and sculpture, and theatrical uses of set-piece descriptions. The second section turns to Hellenistic culture and literary artists' self-conscious exploration of new conditions of viewing and writing about viewing in epigrams, books on travel, and accounts of imaginary museums.
