Otto Brendel's exploration of the art, culture, and society of Etruria takes us through its four main periods of creativity: the Villanovan and Orientalizing era, the Archaic era, the Classical era, and the Hellenistic era, when Etruscan art became extinct. According to Brendel, the Etruscans were deeply influenced by Greek styles but used Greek forms and concepts to further their own purposes. Etruscan art is a private art, aristocratic and luxurious but centered in the life of the family and a continuing life in the tomb. The beautiful art of the Etruscans, illustrated and explained in this book, sheds much light on a people about whom we know little.

Etruscan art was produced by the Etruscan civilization in central Italy between the 10th and 1st centuries BC. From around 750 BC it was heavily influenced by Greek art, which was imported by the Etruscans, but always retained distinct characteristic.

Etruscan Art by Otto Brendel is very well written in a language as accessible to the public as it is to scholars. Of the several volumes of Etruscan art I read in preparation for a trip to Italy, Brendel's is the only one I purchased for my permanent library. The copy is perfect.
