DESCRIPTION:
This course is a chronological survey of Greek sculpture in the
Archaic and Classical periods, ca. 650-330 B.C.  Topics include the
origins and techniques of Greek sculpture, including inspirations from
the Aegean Bronze Age, Egypt, and the Near East; free-standing,
relief, and architectural sculpture in religious, funerary, and public
contexts; lost "masterpieces" of ancient Greek art and the problems
involved in using Roman copies to reconstruct the art history and
individual styles of Greek sculptors.  Special attention will be given
to the purpose, setting, and function of Greek sculpture as a form of
art, its relation to other arts, and its place in archaeological
research.
