Spanning the centuries, this volume shows the ways in which ancient Greek artists represented male and female bodies, both as objects of beauty and as vehicles for displaying personal and collective values, in styles ranging from abstract simplicity to complete realism. Illustrated with more than 100 pieces from the British Museum's collections, the book features such famous sculptures as the Discobolus and the Aphrodite of Knidos alongside vase paintings, funerary reliefs and bronze statuettes.
