In this study, originally published in 1926, Sir Charles Walston sets forward his theory on the 'turning-point' in Classical Greek art in the second quarter of the fifth century BC, which he connects with the creation of the western pediment of the Temple of Olympia by the sculptor Alcamenes. Walston examines the treatment of certain aspects of the human body in Greek art, such as the eye and the male nude, and how such treatments changed during the Classical period. A more general survey of the other works of Alcamenes is also included. This richly illustrated and detailed book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Classical art and its development.
