Bequeathed to the city of Baltimore ‘for the benefit of the people’, the major collection of Greek art assembled by Henry Walters (1848–1931) is rich in small-scale works. This volume presents the collection’s highlights in chronological order, from a Cycladic female idol (c.2500 BCE) to jewellery and cast bronze statuettes of the Hellenistic age. Each period is introduced by an essay tracing the development of artistic themes and techniques; an appendix provides an overview of Greek pottery.
