Описание
From mainland Greece on one side of the Aegean Sea and western Turkey on the other, this book brings together some of the great monuments of Classical antiquity. Drawing on the British Museum's unrivalled collection of Greek, Lycian and Karian architecture and sculpture, this is the first book to present its fascinating subject as one continuous story. Each monument is explained both as a work of art and as a historical phenomenon, revealing how the complex personality of individual buildings is bound up with the people who funded, designed, made, used, destroyed, discovered and studied them.
Lavishly illustrated and with specially commissioned line drawings, this book comprises a remarkable narrative of the art and architecture that has given inspiration to so much in Western visual culture.
With 250 illustrations.
