Originally begun as a successor to Gisella Richter's Sculpture and Sculptors of the Greeks (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1970), Stewart's book is neither a new edition of Richter nor a comprehensive handbook to the art of ancient Greece. Instead, it is a singularly vital examination of large-scale * sculpture from 1200 to 30 B.C. A well-* written work addressing both scholar and layperson, it places sculpture and sculptors in their political and social context. * Extensive notes, references, bibliography, a glossary of Greek and Latin words, and a separate volume of good-to-excel* lent black-and-white plates are included. Essential for any library with an interest * in classical art.

andrew stewart is professor at the university of california at berkeley, and rightfully so. his voice is that of a learned man; scholarly, but understandable, learned, but educational. in 'greek sculpture', he treats the sculptural material evidence from ancient greek with both respect and diligence, while showing an elegant understanding of literary sources. in essence, stewart's treatment of ancient greek sculpture is both light and understandable, and in-depth and pragmatic.
'greek sculpture' is a must-read for any serious student of greek art. it is uneven, but overall brilliant. especially the chapter on the 4th century BC is worth reading. the plates are numerous and aid the formidable text. the overall impression of 'greek sculpture' is an utmost impressive one; stewart has succeeded in both providing the more advanced student with a strong survey and allowing the beginner a view into the most interesting field of ancient greek art. this book must be read by all. it is well worth the $70.
