ARTH 272 Greek and Roman Art

An investigation of the art and architecture of ancient Greece and Rome from the Helladic era (c. 1500 BCE) to the appearance of Christianity in late Roman antiquity. Sculpture, metalwork, mural painting, vase painting, and architecture will be considered, with particular interest in how these forms are reflective of the fundamental political, spiritual, and philosophical developments during this era - as well as how these artistic forms serve as the foundational elements for European Art History.
