about this item

The Hellenistic Age spanned the three momentous centuries from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. to the crowning of Emperor Augustus and the establishment of the Roman Empire. This splendidly illustrated volume examines the rich diversity of art forms—including sculpture in marble, bronze, and terracotta; gold jewelry; engraved gems; and coins—throughout the Hellenistic kingdoms of ancient Greece, and especially in the great city of Pergamon (in present-day Turkey). Featuring more than 250 objects from major museums around the world, including the renowned collection from the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, and essays by an international team of specialists, this book describes the historical context in which these sumptuous works of art were created, and provides a new understanding of this period of masterful artistic accomplishment.
