Here we will explore some of the great monuments of art from classical Greece with an emphasis on the use of stories of heroes and monsters from Greek myth. Heracles, Achilles and Perseus will feature along with the Olympian gods and stories from the Trojan War. We will study the great temples of the ancient Greek world, notably the Parthenon including a detailed examination of the major sculptural programme which tells the stories of the founding of Athens. Greek painting only really exists on vases and we will explore the development of this unique art form, discussing the use of warriors, myth and monsters on the way.
