About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1885, this book examines the extant works of the Greek sculptor Pheidias, best known as the creator of the Parthenon Marbles and the gold and ivory statue of Zeus at Olympia, which was considered to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Waldstein examines the Parthenon Marbles with particular scrutiny and charts the relationship between Pheidias' school and the development of later Greek art, particularly sepulchral reliefs. Four earlier papers by Waldstein on the topic of Pheidias are also reprinted here. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient Greek sculpture.
