The Classical Period : a Handbook
Author: John Boardman
Publisher: Thames & Hudson
For forty years, this widely acclaimed classic has remained unsurpassed as an introduction to art in the Western world, boasting the matchless credibility of the Janson name. This newest update features a more contemporary, more colorful design and vast array of extraordinarily produced illustrations that have become the Janson hallmark. A narrative voice makes this book a truly enjoyable read, and carefully reviewed and revised updates to this edition offer the utmost clarity in contributions based on recent scholarship. Extensive captions for the book’s incredible art program offer profound insight through the eyes of twentieth-century art historians speaking about specific pieces of art featured throughout. Significantly changed in this edition is the chapter on “The Late Renaissance,” in which Janson offers a new perspective on the subject, tracing in detail the religious art tied to the Catholic Reform movement, whose early history is little known to many readers of art history. Janson has also rearranged early Renaissance art according to genres instead of time sequence, and he has followed the reinterpretation of Etruscan art begun in recent years by German and English art historians. With a truly humanist approach, this book gives written and visual meaning to the captivating story of what artists have tried to express—and why—for more than 30,000 years.

For courses in the History of Art. Rewritten and reorganized, this new edition weaves together the most recent scholarship, the most current thinking in art history, and the most innovative online supplements, including digital art library. Experience the new Janson and re-experience the history of art. Long established as the classic and seminal introduction to art of the Western world, the Eighth Edition of Janson's History of Art is groundbreaking. When Harry Abrams first published the History of Art in 1962, John F. Kennedy occupied the White House, and Andy Warhol was an emerging artist. Janson offered his readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view. The History of Art, said Janson, was not just a stringing together of historically significant objects, but the writing of a story about their interconnections, a history of styles and of stylistic change. Janson's text focused on the visual and technical characteristics of the objects he discussed, often in extraordinarily eloquent language. Janson's History of Art helped to establish the canon of art history for many generations of scholars. The new Eighth Edition, although revised to remain current with new discoveries and scholarship, continues to follow Janson's lead in important ways: It is limited to the Western tradition, with a chapter on Islamic art and its relationship to Western art. It keeps the focus of the discussion on the object, its manufacture, and its visual character. It considers the contribution of the artist as an important part of the analysis. This edition maintains an organization along the lines established by Janson, with separate chapters on the Northern European Renaissance, the Italian Renaissance, the High Renaissance, and Baroque art, with stylistic divisions for key periods of the modern era. Also embedded in this edition is the narrative of how art has changed over time in the cultures that Europe has claimed as its patrimony.

Richter's A Handbook of Greek Art is the reference work for anyone with a notion to understand and appreciate the rich diversity of ancient Greece. Dr. Gisela Richter, for many years the curator of Greek and Roman art for the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has created a work of unsurpassed excellence, covering Greek architecture and sculpture, metalwork and terra-cotta statuettes, engraved gems, coins, jewelry, and paintings, plus mosaics, pottery, vases, furniture, textiles, and glass. The pages are full of knowledgeable, engrossing, beautifully written explanatory text, illustrated by hundreds of black-and-white photos, with notes telling at which site or in which museum each item may be seen. Invaluable for students and teachers, it's also an inspirational text for museumgoers and travelers planning a Greek vacation. --Stephanie Gold

Ein großartiges Panorama antiker Geschichte, so fulminant erzählt wie ein historischer Roman.Auf den Spuren des antikenbegeisterten römischen Kaisers Hadrian, der um 120 n. Chr. begann, sein gesamtes Imperium von Schottland bis Ägypten zu bereisen, lässt Robin Lane Fox die Antike lebendig werden,von den homerischen Epen über die Erfindung der Demokratie und den stürmischen Aufstieg des Alexanderreichs bis zur römischen Kaiserzeit und den Anfängen des Christentums. Die Fülle der historischen Ereignisse von 1000 Jahren ordnet der Autor entlang dreier Leitthemen: Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Luxus - Themen, die schon in der Antike und bis zum heutigen Tag die Auseinandersetzung mit der Gesellschaft bestimmen. Anschaulich und lebensvoll schildert Lane Fox,wie sich zunächst die griechische und auf ihren Schultern die römische Klassik entwickelt hat und wie antike Geschmacks- und Wertmaßstäbe uns bis heute prägen.

The Amasis Painter was one of ancient Greece's greatest vase painters, yet his own name has not been recorded, and he is known today only by the name of the potter whose works he most often decorated. A true individualist in the history of Athenian painting, he produced work distinguished by its delicacy, precision, and wit. When the Amasis Painter began his artistic career around 560 B.C., Attic black-figure vase-painting was already fully established and about to overtake Corinthian pottery in the competition for the Etruscan market. Toward the end of his extraordinarily long career around 515 or even later-the red-figure technique had been invented and was rapidly supplanting black-figure in fashion. By tracing the Amasis Painter's stylistic development from his earliest vases to his latest, this book offers a survey of Attic black-figure technique at the peak of its perfection.The book was prepared to accompany an exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1985-1986. The exhibition is the first ever to be devoted to the work of a single artist from ancient Greece, and twenty-two museums and private collectors have lent the vases on display.
