Athenian Black Figure Vases, Paperback / softback Book

Athenian Black Figure Vases Paperback / softback

Part of the World of Art series



Athenian black figure vases bear the work of consummate artists, like Exekias, who depicted on them scenes of myth and everday life which deepen our knowledge and understanding of Greek antiquity. John Boardman enables the reader to study the many aspects of the vases, and to grasp the essential style of a painter or group of painters, without having to consult a number of expensive, and not always easily available, publications. A final section is devoted to the mythological scenes and other decorative features of the vases.
