Summary Greek sculpture was among the first art to communicate human emotions and to offer a more realistic portrait of the individual. By working in new materials and posing the body naturally, Greek sculptors established the foundation of a whole new art form. Classic Greek Masterpieces of Sculpture features more than 60 of these magnificent and influential works that range in form, historical period and subject. Organised chronologically, these works hail from the collections of top museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Louvre. Alongside dynamic photographs of each sculpture is an essay that describes the work and offers commentary on its significance in Greek art. Thought provoking, realistic and influential, these sculptures altered the way people viewed art.
