The Judy and Michael H. Steinhardt Gallery is unique in the Western Hemisphere in its display of the three major types of Greek freestanding marble sculpture of the sixth century B.C.: the kouros and kore, which served as funerary monuments or dedications, and the pillar-like grave stele. This is also the period when Athens supplanted Corinth as the center of pottery production, exemplified by several works attributed to the Amasis Painter, one of the most skillful and innovative of the black-figure artists.
