KIRKUS REVIEW

Primarily for the museum and art gallery viewer, this dictionary handbook provides cursory explanations of the classical myths and religious stories depicted in Western art. Entries (e.g., Bel and the Dragon, Moses, Scylla) often include examples of representative paintings or sculpture and their location.
