The art and architecture of Greece and Rome lie at the heart of the classical tradition of the western world and their legacy is so familiar as to have become commonplace. The legacy may appear simple, but the development of classical art in antiquity was complex and remarkably swift. It ran from near abstraction in eighth-century BC Greece, through years of observation and learning from the arts of the non-Greek world to the east and in Egypt, to the brilliance of the

The Greeks overseas : their early colonies and trade by John Boardman ( Book )
32 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The spread of Greek civilization through Europe, into Africa and the Near East began long before the Classical period, long after Troy, Mycenae and Knossos had fallen. This classic study gives the archaeologist's view of one of the most important periods of European history, describing how, out of the Dark Ages of reduced population and comparative penury, the Greeks set their sails north, south, east and west to plant trading posts and colonies, to reap whatever harvest of materials and expertise the barbarian could offer, and to disseminate the benefits of their own rapidly developing and brilliant civilization. The canvas is broad - Greek mercenaries leaving graffiti on the statues of Abu Simbel in southern Egypt; Greek traders braving the Atlantic breakers or introducing wine to Burgundy. The Greeks Overseas vividly demonstrates the value of archaeology to the historical record, and indicates how much the arts and culture of Classical Greece already owed to foreign influences."--BOOK JACKET

The history of Greek vases : potters, painters, and pictures by John Boardman ( Book )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In no other art of antiquity do we come closer to the visual experience of the ancient Greeks than through their finely-wrought pottery." "In this volume John Boardman explores the vases functions in Greek life and culture, and as messengers of style and subject. He relates the processes of identifying artists, the methods of making and decorating the vases, the artists lives and conduct in the potters' quarter in Greek towns, and the ways in which their wares were traded far beyond the borders of the Greek world, from Morocco to Persia, from Russia to the Sudan. Boardman demonstrates that the scenes figured on the vases reflected not simply on story-telling, but on the politics and social order of the day; moreover, they exercised a style of narrative in art that was to resonate throughout Western culture for centuries to come."--BOOK JACKET

The diffusion of classical art in antiquity by John Boardman ( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and German and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In some places, such as Italy, these images were overwhelmingly successful. In Egypt, the Celtic world, the eastern steppes, and other regions with strong local traditions, they were never effectively assimilated. Finally, in cultures where there was a subtler blend of influences, notably in the Buddhist east, the Classical images could serve as a catalyst to the generation of effective new styles. Boardman's approach is as much archaeological as art-historical, and the processes he reveals pose questions about how images in general are copied and reinterpreted. In addition, the author has demonstrated for specialists and for a broader audience that looking at Greek art from the outside provides a wealth of new understanding of Greek art itself

"The World of Ancient Art is an exploration of the arts of antiquity, from the earliest European cave paintings to the coming of Christianity and Buddhism in the Old World and the arrival of the Spaniards in the New." "Dividing the ancient world into three broad climatic categories - the northern nomadic, the temperate farmers and city-dwellers, and the tropical - the author focuses on common solutions that Man the Artist has devised for the problems posed by his environment, a factor that also determined the nature of his society and its arts. The solutions are shown to have been very similar worldwide within each broad environmental zone, and the pattern can be demonstrated in the arts no less than in social organization." "Richly illustrated and clearly captioned, the book covers the full range of ancient art produced across the globe, from China to Egypt, through Classical Greece to South America, Africa, Australasia and Oceania, and serves to illustrate the many similarities and differences to be observed over the millennia in which artists were required to serve man and his gods more completely than they have ever done since."--BOOK JACKET
