In this study of Athenian vases of the late Archaic period, Neer tracks the design and imagery of the symposium, with its elaborate riddles and poems and the development of "naturalistic" techniques, such as foreshortening and shading. He also traces the birth of self-portraiture at the end of the sixth century and the treatment of overtly political subject-matter in the early democracy. The author thus reexamines basic ideas about Greek art and history, with particular regard to naturalism, realism, allegory, and the relation of ceramics to social life. Neer further demonstrates how formal ambiguity provided vase painters and their audiences with a means of creating new conceptions of civic identity.

In his new book, Professor Martin Robertson - author of A History of Greek Art (CUP 1975) and A Shorter History of Greek Art (CUP 1981) - draws together the results of a lifetime's study of Greek vase-painting, tracing the history of figure-drawing on Athenian pottery from the invention of the 'red-figure' technique in the later archaic period to the abandonment of figured vase-decoration two hundred years later. The book covers red-figure and also work produced over the same period in the same workshops in black-figure and other techniques, especially that of drawing in outline on a white ground. The book is intended as a companion volume to Sir John Beazley's The Development of Attic Black-figure (originally published in 1951 by California University Press), and as an examination and defence of Beazley's methods and achievements. This book is a major contribution to the history of Greek vase-painting and anyone seriously interested in the subject - whether scholar, student, curator, collector or amateur - will find it essential reading.
