Greek Art and Architecture

The course provides an introduction to Greek painting, sculpture and architecture in the period c.800 - 50 BC.

In the context of a broadly chronological survey, particular attention will be paid to the relationship between Greek art and social history. Topics addressed will include: stylistic change and innovation, the role of the state in the development of Greek art, religious ideology and religious iconography, technology and appearance, the social contexts and uses of art. Regular recourse will be made to the largest collection of Greek art outside Athens, the British Museum.
