Accompanying an unprecedented loan exhibition composed primarily of sculptures selected from public institutions in Greece, this catalogue presents extensive pictorial documentation of 34 works (marble statues and reliefs, small bronze figures and carved gravestones) illustrating the revolutionary naturalism of Greek art of the Classical period. Commentaries on the featured objects supplement eight essays discussing such topics as the humanistic ideals of Athenian democracy, the architectural achievements of Greece in the 5th century B.C., the representation of the human form in Classical art, and the political dimensions of ancient drama.
