Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0714824968, Paperback)Richter's A Handbook of Greek Art is the reference work for anyone with a notion to understand and appreciate the rich diversity of ancient Greece. Dr. Gisela Richter, for many years the curator of Greek and Roman art for the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has created a work of unsurpassed excellence, covering Greek architecture and sculpture, metalwork and terra-cotta statuettes, engraved gems, coins, jewelry, and paintings, plus mosaics, pottery, vases, furniture, textiles, and glass. The pages are full of knowledgeable, engrossing, beautifully written explanatory text, illustrated by hundreds of black-and-white photos, with notes telling at which site or in which museum each item may be seen. Invaluable for students and teachers, it's also an inspirational text for museumgoers and travelers planning a Greek vacation. --Stephanie Gold
