Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. From about 620 to 480 B. c., the Greek mainland and islands developed the intellectual, political, and religious attitudes and institutions that set the stage for classical Greek art and thought. It was a time of expanding self-awareness and a heightened sense of community for the Greeks, of eager colonization and growing foreign trade, the ordering of language and alphabet, the lyrical poetic expression of a rich mythic tradition and of scientific discoveries. This frenzied activity was reflected in their architecture, sculpture, and painting. The present, magnificently illustrated volume, sequel to The Birth of Greek Art in the Arts of Mankind series, describes in detail the origins and growth of archaic Greek art. During this period the great orders of architecture were developed, the sculpted human form achieved independence and psychological life, and painting reached heights of harmony and composition. Important new techniques were applied. Roland Martin traces the progress of archaic architecture from the simple one-room megarons to colonnaded temples built as much for social prestige as for worship. Jean Charbonneaux analyzes sculpture from the early monumental Dipylon Head to carved masterpieces of anatomy and subtle emotions. Francois Villard discusses the development of painting from abstract designs to elegant black-and red-figure pottery. Though the forms and subject matter varied, the measure of archaic Greek art was always man--his legendary exploits, his gods, his image, and his daily activities. This art provided a new way of seeing and conceptualizing so fundamental that it has shaped Western man' s perception of himself and his surroundings to this day. Maps, plans, an extensive glossary, and bibliography complement the text. xii + 438 pp. with 445 illus. (106 in color), 31 plans, 4 maps, 4to.
