About this Course

In this course, we explore the art and architecture of the Greek world, looking in particular at free-standing sculpture (both Archaic and Classical), architectural sculpture, vase painting, and temple architecture. Within each of these categories, we explore issues of style, composition and techniques, the various functions of art and architecture, and general themes.
