Description
The senior curator of Greek and Roman antiquities in the British Museum, Ian Jenkins here surveys the Museum's Parthenon sculptures as prime examples of classical Greek art, as well as how they have inspired writers and artists since they were created in the 5th century BC. He presents them in full views and detailed closeups, and considers the history of the Parthenon and its architectural refinements. Describing the sculptures as architecture—pediments, metopes, and the Ionic frieze—Jenkins explores their subject matter and their possible meaning for the people of ancient Athens, as well as the irony that we now possess a far more intimate knowledge and appreciation of the sculptures than their intended spectators did.
