John Boardman provides another photo-packed volume in The World of Art series. Printed on glossy paper and with more than 450 b&w photos and illustrations, this book is a journey through 6th century Greek sculpture which begins to break away from the rigid artistic parameters of Egyptian monumental sculpture and by the end of the century will begin to move towards the more naturalistic art of the classical period. With an extensive bibliography and index it is another essential addition to the series.
