Art History II: Archaic Greek Through Early Christian Art
The second in a sequence of three art history courses, this study group begins with Archaic Greece and the influence of the Trojan War on vase painting and Egyptian art on statuary of this period. Archaic artists created ways to tell stories on vases and relief sculptures. Even though Classical Greece is much better known to the general public, we will talk about how so much Greek art found its way to the Louvre, the British Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Roman art is my specialization, and the engineering feats of the Romans are stunning. Lastly, we will look at early Christian architecture, paintings, and mosaics. I taught the introductory art history courses at Kent State University for eleven years, and I look forward to discussions with participants in this study group.
