The myths of Troy depicted on Greek vases

The Trojan War inspired Greek poets and dramatists.  Now, using a wealth of illustrations, David Stuttard shows how vase painters too responded to the myths of Troy in ways that could be intensely moving, irreverently funny and sometimes heart-stoppingly profound.
