The British Museum has one of the finest collection of antiquities from ancient Greece and Rome outside of those countries. This beautiful book investigates 180 of the most important works, including the most famous (such as the Parthenon sculptures) and also a selection of lesserknown but equally important pieces. The unique story of each work of art is illustrated with superb photographs, many specially taken for this publication. A preface includes a brief history of the British Museum’s marvellous collections, and chapter introductions provide a concise background to each period of Classical art. A stunning overview of the artistic production of this creative period and a must-have introduction to Classical art.
