ARTH 3220 Greek and Roman Art


This course provides an introduction to the architecture, sculpture, and painting produced by the Aegean, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman civilizations. We will begin with the late Bronze Age (c.1500 BCE) and continue through the Roman Empire (c. 400 CE). Major themes include: the interrelationships of art, religion, and the state in the ancient world; the arts of Greece and Rome as the cultural heritage of the West; and the role of Greek and Roman art in the field of Art History. Class meetings will consist of lectures and some “workshop” periods. During “workshop,” students will participate in active discussions, in-class assignments, and group projects. This course is Writing Intensive.
