Development of Portrait Sculpture in Ancient Greece

In this slide-illustrated lecture, our speaker will outline how Greek sculptors and patrons contributed to the development of portraits in Archaic through Hellenistic Greek art. From grave markers and honorific statues in Classical Athens to the portraits of Alexander the Great and his successors erected all over the eastern Mediterranean, she will show how ancient Greek portrait sculpture developed in the political and religious context of ancient Greek city-states and the Hellenistic empires.
