Format: Paperback
This is the closest thing we have to an up-to-date survey of Hellenistic Art, but while it has virtues (it is short, clear, and with good pictures) it isn't really authoritative. The alternatives are Pollitt (from 1986, brilliant and exhaustive), and R.R. Smith (1991) which is nothing special. You would think that, given the extraordinary rise in interest in the period, and the discoveries of the last 30 years, that there would be a great big book or exhibition catalogue (for a dream exhibition?) that would be out there.

It is worth noting that, while the book is published by the Getty Museum, the book is not focussed on their collection, but ranges widely.
