Having just spent 7 hours in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I wanted some books to remind me of the wonderful collections of various periods of art history. This book is the best overall introduction to Greek art and a great reminder of the power and diversity of Greek art. I was an Art major in college so I already had something of a background in the major historical periods of worldwide art development. I definitely concur with all the other 5 star reviews of this book. It is not only a great introduction to Greek art, but it goes into more depth that an Art Survey course does. It is a bit smaller than I expected, but the better to carry it around at a museum. I suggest using it that way as well as to read the fine text.

As with the other books in this diverse series, it provides what you are looking for. A bit dry, but that is to be expected. If you're looking for a great introduction to the subject, I would recommend this book. Especially if you don't want to fork out the money for The History of Art, or want something more in-depth.

Wonderful binding.

Many full color photos included. Book was very fun to read and author is clearly well informed on the topic of Greek art.

Boardman published a wonderful book to delve into Greek Art with. Whether you're a History buff, Archaeology enthusiast, or Art major, this book will quickly become one of your favorites.

Having a background in Ancient Greek history, but wanting to learn more about a deficiency - namely the art of ancient Greece, I tried exploring the availability of art history books that focused on ancient Greece. What I discovered in this accessible survey (which popped up first when I searched on Amazon) more than met my needs. And whetted my appetite for more.

In a well written book, Boardman explores the evolution of Greek art - from Mycenaean and Minoan civilization to the Hellenistic period and beyond (the legacy). In eight succinct chapters, richly illustrated, Boardman is able to expertly convey how Greek art changed. And not just in Athens, though a focus on Athens was a major portion of the book, but throughout the Greek speaking world. Boardman focuses on the intention of the art in Ancient Greece, trying to place it into context of how the peoples of the time saw it. This is especially gratifying for those of us who only see Greek art in museums, far removed from the purpose it served in the civilization that it came from.

If you have a good knowledge of Greek history and Greek mythology, then this is a good book to begin as an introduction to Greek art. Boardman focuses on art more than on political events so without that background in Greek history this book will not be as rewarding. My only complaint is that this book is not available as an eBook available for my iPad.

I was introduced to this book initially as a supplemental text in a college class on Ancient Greece many years ago. I picked it up again recently and found it to be a fascinating and enlightening survey of Greek Art History. Exploring the progression and connection between various periods, techniques and styles, the book is very well illustrated and edited. Each section contains numerous examples that clearly demonstrate the points made in the accompanying text. The earliest geometric works , the archaic styles of Minoan and Mycenaen culture, and the classical period are all well described and represented. To the general reader who is not an art historian this is an incredibly easy guide to follow that will enrich your understanding of the importance of these cultures and the works they left behind.
Good book, came early! Helpful since Im a student!
