Description - Magne Graecia by Michael Bennet

Between the 8th and 6th centuries B.C., adventurous Greeks colonized many areas of South Italy and Sicily, a watershed historical event that would profoundly influence the ancient Etruscans and Romans and is even reflected in the Italian Renaissance. This magnificant volume presents 82 masterpieces of Greek vase painting and sculpture in terracotta, stone, and bronze from the eight great museum collections of South Italy and Sicily. Featured are brief commentaries and colorplates for each object, including many details, as well as six scholarly essays about various aspects of Greek art and civilization in Magna Graecia (Great Greece). Maps, glossary, and bibliography complete this invaluable reference work.
