This sequel to Sir John Boardman's widely acclaimed handbooks on Greek sculpture of the Archaic and Classical periods brings the story down through the fourth century BC to the days of Alexander the Great. The author discusses the innovations of the period - the female nude and portraiture, many important monuments including the Mausoleum at Halikarnassos, and several of the great names such as Praxiteles and Lysippus who were lionised by later generations. Complementing the other handbooks this volume also presents Greek sculpture made in the colonies of Italy and Sicily from the Archaic period onwards, as well as that made for eastern, non-Greek rulers. A final section considers the role of Greek sculpture in moulding Western taste to the present day

the arts served very different societies and patrons - tyrannies, democracies, empires; the roles and objectives of the artists; the way in which the classical style was disseminated far beyond the borders of the Greek and Roman world; but especially the splendour and quality of the arts themselves. And their method is to engage the interest of the reader by a rich succession of illustrations on to which the narrative is woven

The history of Greek vases : potters, painters, and pictures by John Boardman ( Book )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 990 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 )
15 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and German and held by 829 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 by John Boardman ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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

Persia and the West : an archaeological investigation of the genesis of Achaemenid art by John Boardman ( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the 6th century B.C., with no local tradition to guide them, the early kings of the Achaemenid Persian empire, Cyrus the Great and Darius, had to devise a new style of monumental architecture and sculpture with which to decorate their capital cities and express their mastery of the known world. In time Darius created a homogenous new style of Persian court art and architecture, derived from the practices of the peoples he now ruled over: Ionian Greeks, Lydians, Mesopotamians and Egyptians. In this book, John Boardman seeks to trace these sources."--BOOK JACKET
