Description
The classical perception of the human body is perhaps the single most important and wide-ranging legacy bequeathed to the modern world by antiquity; not only has it directed the evolutionary trajectory of Western art, it has also saturated almost every aspect of the contemporary subconscious. From Aphrodite to the Venus de Milo, from Byzantine diptych to Hollywood cinema screen, this illustrated study by classical art lecturer Michael Squire demonstrates the wide range of cultural ideas and anxieties that were explored by the figure of the body, both in antiquity and in the various cultural landscapes that came afterwards.

"Squire has written an engaging book that informs the reader about the art of the body in antiquity and its modern legacy in an appealingly original and idiosyncratic manner."Classical Journal
