An authority on Greek sculpture, she has written many books on the subject, including Hellenistic Sculpture II: The Styles of ca. 200–100 B.C., Hellenistic Sculpture III: The Styles of ca. 100–31 B.C. and Fourth-Century Styles in Greek Sculpture, all published by the University of Wisconsin Press. She is the recipient of the Gold Medal for Distinguished Archaeological Achievement from the Archaeological Institute of America.


“Fluently written, clearly organized, and thoroughly and impeccably documented. Anyone who has a serious interest in Hellenistic art will want to read it and refer to it.”
—Jerome J. Pollitt, Yale University
