This is an account of large-scale Greek sculpture from the Dark Ages to Augustus (c.1200-30 BC). Andrew Stewart not only describes and dates the sculpture but also places it in its full social and political context. He focuses on who the sculptors were, how their workshops were run, who commissioned and supported their work, and what the political, cultural, and natural settings were. The book consists of two volumes, Text and Plates, and contains more than 900 high quality illustrations and reconstructions. Also included are a glossary of Greek and Latin terms, and translations of ancient literary and epigraphical testimonies.

Originally begun as a successor to Gisella Richter's Sculpture and Sculptors of the Greeks (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1970), Stewart's book is neither a new edition of Richter nor a comprehensive handbook to the art of ancient Greece. Instead, it is a singularly vital examination of large-scale * sculpture from 1200 to 30 B.C. A well-* written work addressing both scholar and layperson, it places sculpture and sculptors in their political and social context. * Extensive notes, references, bibliography, a glossary of Greek and Latin words, and a separate volume of good-to-excel* lent black-and-white plates are included. Essential for any library with an interest * in classical art.
