The Greek Art of the Aegean Islands exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and this accompanying volume present a rich sampling of the splendid cultural heritage of Greece. Not only do they emphasize the diverse geographic centers of artistic production but also cover a broad chronological span, extending from the Early Bronze Age to the Classic Period of the fifth century B.C. Many of the objects are of particular interest in that they are recent finds, which, outside of archaeological circles, are known only to those who have actually visited the National Museum in Athens, and the many different local museums throughout the Greek islands. These loans demonstrate the significant cultural interconnections among the islands as well as the wealth and variety of materials used and the lively forms that characterize so much of Greek art. [This book was originally published in 1979 and has gone out of print. This edition is a print-on-demand version of the original book.]
