The ancient Greeks told their famous stories of themselves and their history in both the intimate spaces of vase painting and in the more public displays of sculpture. We will examine images of Greek Myth by asking: How was export vase ware to be read by their Greek and non-Greek audiences? How do we determine the referents of those images, when the myths had not yet been recorded in texts? How did viewers encounter, read and understand their highly decorated temples? The course will also engage later Hellenistic and Roman works.
