"Arranging his material with far-reaching originality by key preoccupations in Hellenistic art - power, victory, benefaction, prowess, wisdom, piety, desire, luxury, difference and death - Stewart brilliantly contextualizes and analyzes its wealth. He offers a fascinating and reliable study for our times and beyond, wearing his magisterial learning lightly and wittily."
Graham Zanker, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
"Intelligent, erudite, even humorous, Andrew Stewart's stimulating book on Hellenistic art pays close attention to ancient sources and contexts and does much to illuminate the art of this multicultural period."
Mary Sturgeon, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"Andrew Stewart deftly weaves together literature, history, politics and visual culture to create a vivid and arresting account of Hellenistic art that is at once erudite and accessible. A good book makes one see the subject anew, and this is exactly what Stewart achieves - a portrait of Hellenistic art for the twenty-first century."
Susan Rotroff, Washington University, St Louis
"Arguments are presented clearly, and the layout is handled deftly. It is a joy to read."
