About the Class
From the pyramids of Egypt to the wall paintings of Pompeii, the ancient world has inspired generations of artists and architects. Using the Barnes’s fascinating and often overlooked collection of antiquities as a starting point, this class explores the major artistic and architectural moments of the ancient world with a focus on the Mediterranean cultures of Egypt, Greece, and Rome.
