This volume, highlighting the development of Greek art from the dawn of the Iron Age to the age of Alexander, features forty-four exceptional ancient Greek, Etruscan, and Italic vases. These painted vessels - monuments to the search by Greek artists for the means of realizing on a small scale, on a two-dimensional surface, accurate renderings of the human form, human spaces, and divine narratives - are masterpieces of the potter's craft and the painter's art. The Greek artists represented - including the Athenians: Andokides, the Berlin Painter, Epiktetos, the Painter of the Madrid Fountain, the Tarquinia Painter, as well as the Baltimore Painter of Magna Graeci - are some of the masters of the medium.
