Gods and Heroes in Art

From the J. Paul Getty Museum, this book is an excellent resource to assist art lovers in recognizing the legendary characters of classical antiquity in art. The characters are each described in entries summarizing their distinctive stories, their special attributes, and the ways in which artists have depicted them.

Each entry is richly illustrated with reproductions of works of art in which the god or hero is pictured, giving readers a chance to examine images of the character and to understand the work of art better.
