Description
ANCIENT ART
The Mediterranean Sea is a lake and its shores have produced many important cultures and artistic traditions. The course will survey the artistic and cultural traditions of Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Aegean, from the Neolithic to the end of the Bronze Age (ca. 6000-1200 BCE), a formative period for the cultures that developed in these regions. Special attention will be paid to: 1) the relationship between the artistic traditions of these areas and the societies which produced them, and 2) the way in which influences from one culture were transformed by another.
