  • Description

    Greek sculpture was among the first art to communicate human emotions, offering a more realistic portrait of the individual. By working in new materials and posing the body naturally, Greek sculptors established the foundation of a whole new art form. Classic Greek Masterpieces of Sculpture features more than sixty of these magnificent and influential works, ranging in form, historical period, and subject. Organized chronologically, these works are from the collections of top museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, and the Louvre, among others.     
    Alongside dynamic, detailed photographs of each piece of sculpture is an essay that both describes the work and offers commentary on its significance in Greek art. Thought provoking, realistic, and influential, these sculptures altered the way in which we viewed art, both in its purpose and form.
