This is the first Zoom lecture I did for my Howard Community College museum classes once everything shut down due to the covid19 pandemic. There’s a lot of visiting as well as some technical glitches in the beginning since this was the very first one and the learning curve was high. I suggest you skip ahead about 16 minutes to begin the lecture.
The art of Classical and Hellenistic Greece is the foundation for all traditional styles from the Renaissance to Neoclassicism. In this lecture I introduce some of the most important Greek sculptures and trace their influence through the centuries. This is a great introductory lecture for both newcomers to the study of art history as well as serious students. I hope you enjoy it!
