New perspective on classical sculpture in context

Ian Jenkins, the curator of Greek and Roman Antiquities at the British Museum deserves thanks for his enlightening treatment of Greek architecture and sculpture in a single volume. Writing mainly about examples with sculpture in the Museum, including the Parthenon of Athens the Nereid Monument from Xanthos, the Temple of Apollo at Bassae, and the Temple of Athena Polias at Priene, he places the architecture and sculpture in their historical context. I wish this book would have been available for my students and for my own pleasure. during the thirty years when I taught architectural history.
