Publisher's Description

A comprehensive examination of the art and culture of the ancient Greek kingdoms of the great Hellenistic period

The Hellenistic Age spanned the three momentous centuries from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. to the crowning of Emperor Augustus and the establishment of the Roman Empire. This splendidly illustrated volume examines the rich diversity of art forms—including sculpture in marble, bronze, and terracotta; gold jewelry; engraved gems; and coins—throughout the Hellenistic kingdoms of ancient Greece, and especially in the great city of Pergamon (in present-day Turkey). Featuring more than 250 objects from major museums around the world, including the renowned collection from the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, and essays by an international team of specialists, this book describes the historical context in which these sumptuous works of art were created, and provides a new understanding of this period of masterful artistic accomplishment.

Editorial Reviews

’The handsomely produced catalogue is a worthy accompaniment to the exhibition … The texts are concise and richly informative  … Photographs are large and details crisp, which brings to life even the smallest coins and delicate terracottas.’ - Christine Gardner, Burlington
