This slide-lecture course provides an historical overview of European art from the classical ideals of the Greek and Romans to the religious art of the Gothic cathedrals that have influenced the development of Modern European art and architecture. Beginning with the Acropolis, we examine the ideas and forms of Western Classicism that were revived during the Italian Renaissance, and the reactions to Classicism in subsequent historical periods, including the early Christian, Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic artistic movements.
