Greek Art and Archaeology by John Griffiths Pedley

Greek Art and Architecture explores the development of Greek art across three centuries. This extensively illustrated and clearly written text is accessible to introductory-level students. The major categories of Greek Art and architecture- including sculpture, vase painting, wall painting, and metal work in a historical, social, and archaeological context, are explored.


Reading this book is like having a wonderful conversation with a learned and enthusiastic teacher who has a deep appreciation for the Classical world. Mary Ann Eaverly, University of Florida This text is as much a cultural history text as it is an art and archaeology one-which is exactly why I use it. Paul Scotton, California State University, Long Beach
