The Aegean in The Bronze Age...
Since AP doesn’t include Aegean art in your
image set, this will be a BRIEF overview of the
art of the Aegean. I would encourage you to
READ chapter four so you have some
background, as it is the foundation for Greek
art. It WILL be on your next test.

EU: Greek art is characterized by pantheon of gods (particular set of gods;
literally a pantheon is a temple or house of worship) that are represented by
intricately done images of them decorating large civic or religious buildings.
● Greek art is studied chronologically according to changes in styles
● Greek works are not studied according to dynastic rule, as in Egypt, but
according to broad changes in stylistic patterns
● Greek art is most known for idealization and harmonic proportions, both in
sculpture and in architecture.
● Greek art has had an important impact on European art, particularly in the
18th century.
EU: Much ancient writing survives in the fields of literature, law, politics and
business. These documents shed light on Greek civilization as a whole, and on
Greek art in particular.
● Greek writing contains some of the earliest contemporary accounts about art and
artists.
● Epics form the foundation of Greek writing. The texts were at first transmitted
orally, but later recorded in writing.

Important to Note:
● Hellenistic Greek States were governed by Kings unlike previous
periods where they were democratically ruled by their citizens.
● These rulers were specifically interested in exotic goods and
amassed a great deal of them through building commercial
relationships with cultures from all over Eurasia
● People moved freely throughout the Hellenistic world and
everyone spoke a common language, koine, a kind of colloquial
Greek.
A Few More Notes:
● With this newfound modernity, people also felt alienated and alone. At one time,
they were in complete control of every detail of government and society, and now
they were governed by bureaucrats.
● This feeling of alienation can be seen in the art of the time and read in both
philosophy and literature.
● Both the art and the writing of the time reveals feelings of intensity, desperation,
great emotion and toil, and even protest against commercialism and modernity.
● Art specifically expressed the importance of the individual and represented actual
people as opposed to gods and ideal perfection.

ENDURING UNDERSTANDING 2-4.
The art of Ancient Greece and Rome is
grounded in civic ideals and polytheism. Etruscan and Roman artists and architects
accumulated and creatively adapted Greek objects and forms to create buildings and
artworks that appealed to their tastes for eclecticism and historicism.
Essential Knowledge 2-4a.
Ancient Greek art was produced in Europe and western
Asia, primarily in the region of present-day Greece, Turkey, and southern Italy, from
600 B.C.E. to 100 C.E. Etruscan art (c. 700–100 B.C.E., from the region of Etruria
in central Italy) and ancient Roman art was produced in Europe and western Asia
from c. 753 B.C.E. to 337 C.E. The arts of these early western artistic cultures are
generally studied chronologically. Additionally, archaeological models and stylistic
analysis have identified periods based on stylistic changes. Artworks are assigned
to periods according to styles (e.g., archaic Greek), governments, or dynasties (e.g.,
the Roman Republic).
Essential Knowledge 2-4b.
Art considered Ancient Greek includes works from the
archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods, as defined according to artistic style,
not by political units such as governments or dynasties. Etruscan art is typically
considered as a single cultural unit even though Etruria was comprised of separate
city-states. Roman art includes works from the republican, early imperial, late
imperial, and late antique periods, as defined using governmental structures and
dynasties rather than stylistic characteristics. Many Hellenistic works are in fact
Roman in origin, which favors presenting these traditions at the same time.
Essential Knowledge 2-4c.
Ancient Greek, Etruscan, and Roman artists and
architects were influenced by earlier Mediterranean cultures. Ancient Greek
religious and civic architecture and figural representation are characterized by
idealized proportions and spatial relationships, expressing societal values of
harmony and order. Art from the Etruscan and Roman periods is typified by stylistic
and iconographical eclecticism and portraiture. Etruscan and ancient Roman art
express republican and imperial values, power, and preference for conspicuous
display. Etruscan and Roman architecture are characterized by investment in
public structures. Roman architecture is also characterized by borrowing from its
immediate predecessors (Greek and Etruscan) and by technical innovation.
Essential Knowledge 2-4d.
Ancient Greek and Roman art provides the foundation
for the later development of European and Mediterranean artistic traditions. From
the 18th century onward, European and American observers admired ancient Greek
and Roman ethical and governmental systems, which contributed to prioritizing
art and architecture that could be associated with political elites and cultural
capitals (e.g., Rome). More recently, art historians have examined art produced by
contemporary subjects or “provincial” populations.
ENDURING UNDERSTANDING 2-5.
Contextual information for ancient Greek and
Roman art can be derived from contemporary literary, political, legal, and economic
records as well as from archaeological excavations conducted from the mid-18th
century onward. Etruscan art, by contrast, is illuminated primarily by modern
archaeological record and by descriptions of contemporary external observers.
Essential Knowledge 2-5a.
Some of the earliest written statements about artists
and art making survive from the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. Little survives of
the rich Etruscan literary tradition that is documented in Roman sources.
Essential Knowledge 2-5b.
The Greek, Etruscan, and Roman cultures shared a rich
tradition of epic storytelling (first orally transmitted, later written) that glorified
the exploits of gods, goddesses, and heroes. The texts recorded a highly developed
rhetorical tradition that prized public oratory and poetry. Religious rituals and
prognostications were guided by oral tradition, not texts.

The arts of these early western artistic cultures are generally studied chronologically. Additionally, archaeological models and stylistic analysis have identified periods based on stylistic changes. Artworks are assigned to periods according to styles (e.g., archaic Greek), governments, or dynasties (e.g., the Roman Republic). Essential Knowledge 2-4b. Art considered Ancient Greek includes works from the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods, as defined according to artistic style, not by political units such as governments or dynasties. Etruscan art is typically considered as a single cultural unit even though Etruria was comprised of separate city-states. Roman art includes works from the republican, early imperial, late imperial, and late antique periods, as defined using governmental structures and dynasties rather than stylistic characteristics. Many Hellenistic works are in fact Roman in origin, which favors presenting these traditions at the same time.
  • 116. Essential Knowledge 2-4c. Ancient Greek, Etruscan, and Roman artists and architects were influenced by earlier Mediterranean cultures. Ancient Greek religious and civic architecture and figural representation are characterized by idealized proportions and spatial relationships, expressing societal values of harmony and order. Art from the Etruscan and Roman periods is typified by stylistic and iconographical eclecticism and portraiture. Etruscan and ancient Roman art express republican and imperial values, power, and preference for conspicuous display. Etruscan and Roman architecture are characterized by investment in public structures. Roman architecture is also characterized by borrowing from its immediate predecessors (Greek and Etruscan) and by technical innovation. Essential Knowledge 2-4d. Ancient Greek and Roman art provides the foundation for the later development of European and Mediterranean artistic traditions. From the 18th century onward, European and American observers admired ancient Greek and Roman ethical and governmental systems, which contributed to prioritizing art and architecture that could be associated with political elites and cultural capitals (e.g., Rome). More recently, art historians have examined art produced by contemporary subjects or “provincial” populations.
  • 117. ENDURING UNDERSTANDING 2-5. Contextual information for ancient Greek and Roman art can be derived from contemporary literary, political, legal, and economic records as well as from archaeological excavations conducted from the mid-18th century onward. Etruscan art, by contrast, is illuminated primarily by modern archaeological record and by descriptions of contemporary external observers. Essential Knowledge 2-5a. Some of the earliest written statements about artists and art making survive from the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. Little survives of the rich Etruscan literary tradition that is documented in Roman sources. Essential Knowledge 2-5b. The Greek, Etruscan, and Roman cultures shared a rich tradition of epic storytelling (first orally transmitted, later written) that glorified the exploits of gods, goddesses, and heroes. The texts recorded a highly developed rhetorical tradition that prized public oratory and poetry. Religious rituals and prognostications were guided by oral tradition, not texts.
