An Introduction to the Art of the Ancient Greek World

Gina Muskett

A thousand years of Greek art, from its beginnings in the 11th century BC, has influenced other societies from Ancient Rome until the present day. This introductory course considers the impressive achievements in architecture, sculpture, painted pottery and mosaics of the Ancient Greek world, together with an appreciation of the ways in which art was used in society. Alongside discussion of changes in artistic style and subjects, as well as the challenge of identifying individual artists, the course also explores the enduring influence of Ancient Greek art on painters, sculptors and architects of more recent times.
