Summary
"What was the "Classical Revolution" in Greek art? What were its contexts, aims, achievements, and impact?" "This book introduces students to these questions and offers some answers to them. Andrew Stewart examines Greek architecture, painting, and sculpture of the fifth and fourth centuries B.C. in relation to the great political, social, cultural, and intellectual issues of the period. Intended for use in courses in classical civilization, as well as Greek art and archaeology, his book draws on Greek lyric poetry, tragedy, comedy, historiography, oratory, philosophy, medicine, and science to illuminate the art of the period."--BOOK JACKET
