The Mycenaean Pictorial Style
in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens
Distributed by University of Exeter Press.
A catalogue raisonné of the Mycenaean pictorial-style pottery in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
The Mycenaean pictorial style, which first became known as a result of the discoveries at Mycenae at the end of the 19th century, is one of the most interesting subjects in prehistoric archaeology.
The collection of the National Archaeological Museum is the richest in the world and includes vases from every part of Greece -many of which are the work of known vase-painters- decorated with figures of humans and animals, with ships and helmets, and with other motifs.
English language text. 522 b&w illustrations including photographs and drawings.
