This book is a companion volume to Professor Pollitt's The Art of Rome: Sources and Documents (CUP, 1983). An authoritative and reliable sourcebook, The Art of Ancient Greece contains a comprehensive collection in translation of ancient literary evidence relating to Greek sculpture, painting, architecture, and the decorative arts. The material is presented in a way which makes this important evidence available to students who are not specialists in the Classical languages or Classical archaeology. Accompanying the author's translations of a wide selection of Greek and Latin texts is an accessible, substantial bibliography, as well as an introduction, and explanatory commentary.

J. J. Pollitt is Sterling Professor Emeritus of Classical Archaeology and History of Art at Yale University. He served as Dean of the Graduate School from 1986 to 1991, Editor-in-Chief of American Journal of Archaeology from 1973 to 1977 and Chairman of the Publications Committee of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens from 1982 to 1985. He is the author of numerous books, including Art and Experience in Classical Greece, The Ancient View of Greek Art, Art in the Hellenistic Age and Personal Styles in Greek Sculpture.
