    Story and Image in Ancient Greece

    Presented by at Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum

    December 8, 2010


    Story and Image in Ancient Greece

    David Elmer, Assistant Professor of the Classics, Harvard University; and Susanne Ebbinghaus, George M. A. Hanfmann Curator of Ancient Art, and Head, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Mythological tales inspired ancient Greek epic poetry and theater as well as painting and sculpture. Looking at a number of painted Greek vases depicting stories such as the ransom of Hector, this gallery conversation will consider the different ways in which myths are represented in word and image.

    This popular series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museums curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.

    Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.

    Limited to 20 participants; please arrive early.
