This book sees Mary Beard consider how art has shaped – and been shaped by – its creators.

This illuminating work is split into two parts. In the first, Beard examines the portrayal of human figures over time, and how one particular version of the human body is still seen as the ‘ideal’, particularly in Western society. In the second part, Beard considers the link between religion and art – and how religion has worked to destroy art as well as create it.

Originally written as a companion to the BBC documentary series Civilisations, this entertaining and thoughtful read can be enjoyed alone or in conjunction with the TV series.
