Because of the growth of museums in this country, we have now in America original works of Greek and Roman sculpture in sufficient numbers to show the development of this branch of the Fine Arts as a whole and to illustrate the most important features of the accomplishment of different ages. In each of the earlier chapters in this book the author first considers the progress of the sculptors during the period under discussion, using well-known monuments for illustration, and then he takes up monuments in America which show similar qualities. The last chapter points out the essential characteristics of Greek and Roman sculpture and shows why it has been, and is, so much admired. The volume accordingly has high value for every American student of ancient art.
