Click for a larger photo
This booklet attempts to trace the history of Greek terracotta figures - commonly known as terracottas - with illustrations taken from the British Museum collections. Although the term terracotta is generally used to include large statues, architectural ornament, and decorative reliefs of this material, it is here restricted to statuettes, which form a distinct class, and are best considered alone.
