DEFINING BEAUTY | THE BODY IN ANCIENT GREEK ART
- € 40
The accompanying catalogue to the British Museum exhibition Defining Beauty: the body in ancient Greek art.
This title features a visually stunning and thought-provoking exploration of the human condition seen through ancient Greek eyes, with a particular focus on the human form.
In a series of lively introductory chapters written by a selection of academics, historians and artists, it is revealed how the Greeks themselves viewed the sculpture, which would have originally been vividly enhanced with colour, and how it was regarded and treated in later pagan antiquity.
The revival of the Greek body in the modern era is also discussed, including the shocking effect of the arrival of the Parthenon sculptures in London at the beginning of the 19th century.
