The centaur's smile : the human animal in early Greek art by J. Michael Padgett( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to investigate representations of human animals in early Greek art (ca. 750-450 B.C.). The Centaur's Smile discusses the oriental antecedents of these fantastic creatures, examining the influence of Egyptian and Near Eastern models on the formation of Greek monsters in the Geometric and Archaic periods. Fully illustrated essays explore the nature and origin of horse men (centaurs and satyrs) and the broader range of Greek composite creatures, discussing their evolving forms and changing roles during this seminal period of Greek art."--Jacket
Reading Greek art by Nikolaus Himmelmann( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikolaus Himmelmann is a distinguished scholar who has written extensively on Greek and Roman art and the reception of ancient art in the post-antique world. The primary theme of his works is the manner in which ancient art communicated in its time and how modern cultures have dealt with the fundamentally ambiguous characteristics of ancient art. The work contained in this volume provides an introduction to Himmelmann's critical approach to Greek art and to the function of art in any society. The book is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the correlation of form and content in Greek painting and sculpture. The second presents Himmelmann's reflections on both a method of approach to works of ancient art and the role of antiquity in contemporary society

Greek art and aesthetics in the fourth century B.C. by William A. P Childs( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Greek Art and Aesthetics in the Fourth Century B.C. analyzes the broad character of art produced during this period, providing in-depth analysis of and commentary on many of its most notable examples of sculpture and painting. Taking into consideration developments in style and subject matter, and elucidating political, religious, and intellectual context, William A. P. Childs argues that Greek art in this era was a natural outgrowth of the high classical period and focused on developing the rudiments of individual expression that became the hallmark of the classical in the fifth century. As Childs shows, in many respects the art of this period corresponds with the philosophical inquiry by Plato and his contemporaries into the nature of art and speaks to the contemporaneous sense of insecurity and renewed religious devotion. Delving into formal and iconographic developments in sculpture and painting, Childs examines how the sensitive, expressive quality of these works seamlessly links the classical and Hellenistic periods, with no appreciable rupture in the continuous exploration of the human condition. Another overarching theme concerns the nature of "style as a concept of expression," an issue that becomes more important given the increasingly multiple styles and functions of fourth-century Greek art. Childs also shows how the color and form of works suggested the unseen and revealed the profound character of individuals and the physical world." -- Publisher's description
