Introduction to Roman Art and Architecture

Overview

Overview

There are a limited number of places available on this course. This lecture only module is an introductory survey of the development and major artistic and technical achievements of Greek and Roman architecture, sculpture and painting. The course places art and architecture in its social, political and cultural context. It explores themes such as the representation of the human form, the use of narrative and mythology in art, and urbanisation, and it looks at the works of individual artists. It traces the development of architectural forms, such as temples, theatres and Roman baths with attention to many of the iconic buildings and sites of the ancient world, including the Parthenon, Delphi and Olympia, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and Pompeii.
