About this title


This volume offers `a complete account of the meaning, form and purpose of Cycladic Art' - using masterpieces from the Goulandris collection newly and spectacularly photographed as illustrations. Renfrew introduces the familiar folded-arm figures, explaining their classification and possible use; he considers the art-historical issues which they raise: whether certain figures can be attributed to individual craftsmen; how they were originally painted; proportion schemes that might have been used in their creation; and their formal representation of the human body. He concludes with a consideration of modern perceptions of Cycladic aesthetics.
