Art History I: Paleolithic through New Kingdom Egypt
The first in a sequence of three introductory art history courses, this study group will focus on works of art that demonstrate the ways in which artists documented their world. Beginning in the pre-historic era artists painted cave paintings and carved images on stone and bison horn. In the subsequent Neolithic time period, technology and art joined to support the burgeoning agricultural society in the ancient Near East. The Sumerians, Akkadians, and Assyrians depicted their gods and religious rituals of their cultures, as well as the wars and empires that rose and fell. Contemporary with the Ancient Near Eastern civilizations were the Egyptians. I will focus on early Egyptian art and one of their pyramids as well as later sculptures of the human form, which became canonized and perfected in all media. I bring to this subject my eleven years of teaching art history at Kent State University. The diverse knowledge of the participants will lend to a lively discussion of these fabulous works of art.
