"In this introduction, we have sought to delimit the scope of our inquiry and to discuss briefly three major aspects of our subject, ie the technique, the geographical limitation, and the range of shapes. The sections that follow will comprise lists of vases integrated with the text relevant to them. After the first chapter on the establishment of Attic white-ground, we shall discuss the black-figure and red-figure material proceeding in each case by shape, but excluding cups and lekythoi. The latter categories will be treated separately because they raise special problems and because a juxtaposition of the two produces significant conclusions concerning the artistic quality, the uses, and the volume of Attic white-ground ware." - Introduction. ; Outstanding Dissertations In The Fine Arts; 243, [21] pl pages.
