ART 390 Art of the Classical World

Fall even-numbered years

This course provides the student with a detailed overview of the art of the Classical world, emphasizing both the development of the formal style and the way in which the artists comment on and reflect Greek and Roman cultural ideas. Beginning with a brief discussion of pre-Classical Minoan and Mycenaean art, the course uses the traditional chronological approach (Geometric period, Archaic period, Early Classical period, etc.) as a framework for an exploration of Greek and Roman art as a reflection of religion, politics, and social customs.
