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.
