Product description

Athenian black figure vases bear the work of consummate artists, like Exekias, who depicted on them scenes of myth and everyday life which deepen our knowledge and understanding of Greek antiquity. In this survey, Professor John Boardman enables the reader to study the many aspects of the vases, and to grasp the essential style of a painter or a group of painters from the period between 630 and 470 BC. He devotes an entire section to the mythological scenes and other decorative features of the vases. 383 illus.
