Art History of the Ancient World Through the Middle Ages

October 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$220. – $265.

Chris Fasolino, instructor

This course explores the history of the ancient world, beginning with the bold mariners who sailed the wine-dark sea and inspired Homer’s Odyssey, the Stoic warriors who built the Mycenaean citadels, and the art and architecture of Athens and classical Greece. Then, we see how the earth shook as Alexander the Great charged forth to conquer, leading to a fusion of artistic traditions and cultures. The rise of Rome as a world power is next, as we explore the cities lost in the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius as well as the palaces and forums built by emperors. Next, the medieval world of castles, cathedrals, and illuminated manuscripts will be explored. The course concludes with the rediscovery of ancient artistic techniques that marked the birth of the Italian Renaissance.
