Greek Vases Historical and Descriptive free pdf Excerpt from Greek Vases Historical and Descriptive: With Some Brief Notices of Vases in the Museum of the Louvre, and a Selection From Vases in the British Museum For a number of years the tendency of writers on Greek vase-painting has been to dwell chiefly on questions of artistic style, to discuss elaborately the classification of the vases on a chronological basis, to enter minutely into the problems of local schools of painting, and to try to define the characteristics of those painters whose names have survived on their works. Without some special preparation no reader could follow these intricate speculations with advantage. In these circumstances it occurred to Miss Horner that the more important of the results thus far arrived at could be stated in a way which would be interesting to general readers, and useful to those who might desire some elementary preparation before visiting any great collection of vases, such as that of the British Museum or of the Louvre. She observed also that the questions of artistic style which at present occupy so much of the attention of special students are far from absorbing the whole of the interest that attaches to the Greek vases. There remains, for instance, the vast multitude of subjects drawn from mythology, legend, or daily life. It may be that in ancient times these vases were often purchased for their artistic qualities.
