Etruscan Art


This examination of the art, culture and society of Etruria looks at its four main periods of creativity: the Villanovan and Orientalizing era, the Archaic era, the Classical era, and culminating in the Hellenistic era when Etruscan art as an independent formed died out. Many of the art forms and objects discussed - ceramics, metalware, jewellery, sculpture and wall painting - are known to us through the discovery of tombs, making our perception of it as a funerary art. First published in 1978, this second edition includes an updated bibliography and a bibliographical essay by Francesca Ridgway.
