Athenian black figure vases bear the work of consummate artists, like Exekias, who depicted on them scenes of myth and everyday life which deepen our knowledge and understanding of Greek antiquity. In this handbook Professor 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 accessible publications. Moreover, since no systematic guide to the mythological scenes and other decorative features of the vases is available, Professor Boardman devotes a final section to this subject. The illustrations throughout have been chosen to serve the purposes of demonstrating styles, shapes and scenes as comprehensively as possible. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 252 pages. White titles spine. light wear to edges. illustrated by b/w. photo's.. Includes bibliography, notes & indexes of illustrations, mythological subjects, artists & groups plus general index.
