Art History I: Paleolithic through Old 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.
