Greek Sculpture presents a chronological overview of the plastic and glyptic art forms in the ancient Greek world from the emergence of life-sized marble statuary at the end of the seventh century BC to the appropriation of Greek sculptural traditions by Rome in the first two centuries AD. -Compares the evolution of Greek sculpture over the centuries to works of contemporaneous Mediterranean civilizations -Emphasizes looking closely at the stylistic features of Greek sculpture, illustrating these observations where possible with original works rather than copies -Places the remarkable progress of stylistic changes that took place in Greek sculpture within a broader social and historical context -Facilitates an understanding of why Greek monuments look the way they do and what ideas they were capable of expressing -Focuses on the most recent interpretations of Greek sculptural works while considering the fragile and fragmentary evidence uncovered
