#Epub ⚡ Greek Art ⚢ eBook or E-pub free

It s nice to see art from other countries. Art History was one of my majors in college, along with History This is one of the textbooks I held on to I am particularly drawn to ancient art Art, as a whole, intrigues me It seems to me that it s the window into the souls of a civilization I don t think you can understand any period in history without studying the art that coincides with it Most importantly, art serves to move us beyond a date or event to the consideration of the human element. #Epub ä Greek Art ⚜ First Published In The Early S, This History Of Greek Art Has Been Enlarged And Rewritten It Takes Into Account New Finds As Well As New Ideas And Attitudes To The Subject, And Emphasizes That Greek Art Should Be Seen In Its Proper Context, Not That Of Galleries And MuseumsIllustrations,In Color This was another reject I rescued from the library It has great pictures and is very readable and I found it informative and engaging Happy to add it to my Classical Studies shelf. Looking for a source book for Greek motifs and designs Wide range of photos to study for Greek designs, but they are rather small making it difficult at times to see the details But it does follow Greek art through many stages The short amount of text that I did read was engaging. A great summary of Greek art from about 1200 BC to the foundation of the Roman empire 27 BC.Many illustrations of architecture, sculpture, pottery and other artifacts The Greeks did painting as well but none of that survived except on their urns This art influenced the art of Rome and the Renaissance and even up to modern times. I ve read this in highschool and liked it a lot and now I ve returned to this book in my university studies Love the visual material Undoubtedly good stuff Another good resource book. A fairly interesting book about the art of ancient Greece It s a quick read, but the history isn t as exciting as the pictures and captions are There are some amazing photographs in this book I didn t care much about the pottery, but the statues and the architecture are amazing Also, this is the first time I ve heard of something called heroic nudity It doesn t refer to doing awesome things while naked which is how I ll be using the phrase , but it s about how male gods and heroes were depicted as perfect physical specimens, and that usually involved them being naked It s kind of like taking an average athlete and portraying him as Superman but without the tights. Easy to read, even if you re not an art history major Lots of photos, many in color although, of course, most of the sculpture that still exists is not painted as it was originally.
