KIRKUS REVIEW

Professor Langlotz has brought together from varied sources the ancient Greek sculpture as it developed in the colonies of southern Italy and Sicily. He presents a composite picture in text and photographs that may well become the standard work in this area of his own specialization. The plastic arts remain today as visible and tangible survivals: Mycenean and Minoan forms particularly reside in Paestum and Sicily. The concentration here is on sculpture and pottery, with only fleeting mention of architecture and the numismatic arts. The introductory text plus the wealth of information in the expanded caption notes will be of great value to scholars, but the market is sharply defined and the book is not directed to the general public.
