Taking the story of Greek art from its beginnings, from Cycladic idols and the paintings of Crete to the Great Altar of Zeus at Pergamon, this overview of the subject covers two millennia and almost 200 works, illustrated in colour photographs. Claude Laisne discusses vase-painting, architecture, metalwork, mosaics and sculpture, showing that apparently stylized work can also give an impression of aesthetic freedom, while the cool white marble we see today was originally painted in bright colours.
