Only edition of an ambitious monograph on Greek mythology in art, divided into three sections, treating respectively Achilles, Odysseus, and Orestes, followed by an appendix, additions and corrections. Many well-known antiquities are discussed, often controversially, such as the Ludovisi Mars, the Mattei bas-relief of Thetis and Peleus, and the Barberini (Portland) vase. The author’s desire to present “unpublished” objects is realised through the reproduction of a large number of vases in the collections of Edmé-Antoine Durand, the Comte de Pourtalès-Gorgier, and Thomas Hope. Many of these vases can be traced to permanent collections, in Brussels, Cambridge, London, Naples, New York, and Paris.
