This Section for Graduate students only.  Undergraduate students take
section 2034.
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.
