2 These textbooks have been chosen to complement each other, in the belief that there is no single, unique way to look at art. Osborne, Beard and Henderson, and Elsner offer a more-or-less chronological account of Greek and Roman art that is self-consciously up to date, often unorthodox, and sometimes eccentric. Although their facts are 99% accurate, their opinions should not be taken as gospel but used critically and with caution to stimulate your thoughts. Boardman, on the other hand, offers a completely conventional survey that could have been written at any time since 1950: use it to balance the first three books and to round out their coverage and discussions of the objects. Barnet is the best guide in print to writing about art; Pierce is a standard glossary for reference. 2.
