Greek Painted PotteryBook - 1972
"Greek Painted Pottery" thoroughly examines all painted pottery styles from the Protogeometric to the Hellenistic period and covers all areas of Greece and her Italian colonies. Covering the development of iconography and the use of color, decorative motifs and the distinctive styles of each stage, the book examines the most utilitarian pottery objects as well as some of the finest pieces produced by flourishing civilizations. R. M. Cook discusses the pottery industry and pottery-making techniques, considers how one can date pottery and establish a chronology and presents the various methods by which these artifacts have been classified, preserved and collected. "Greek Painted Pottery" has been extensively revised and includes a fully updated bibliography and coverage of new evidence and new theories which have surfaced since the book was last revised in 1972.
