Greek Architecture and its Sculpture


Members' price *

  • The Greek and Lycian architecture and architectural sculpture in the British Museum is second to none in its quantity, quality, and geographical and chronological spread. 'Greek Architecture and its Sculpture' is the first book to explore this fascinating subject, taking the Museum's unique collection as its starting point. These remarkable works make a continuous story featuring the archaic and later temple of Artemis at Ephesos, the Parthenon and other temples of the Athenian Acropolis, the temple of Apollo at Bassai, the sculptured tombs of Lycia, the Mausoleum at Halikarnassos and the temple of Athena Polias at Priene. Each is explained both as a work of art and as historical phenomenon. The complex personality of these buildings is bound up with the people who funded, designed, built, used, destroyed, discovered and studied them.
