STR 620E - Ancient Philosophy & Neoclassical Art

Course Objectives

1. An introduction to major neoclassical artists and their
work.
2. An introduction to key literary sources upon which
neoclassical art is based
3. An examination of concordances and variances between the
artworks and their literary sources
4. An articulation of theoretical explanations of the variances
between the artworks and their literary sources

Course Description

This course is an examination of Neoclassical artworks that
represent scenes depicted in ancient philosophical and
mythological literature. Neoclassical art is characterized by
great attention to detail in depicting ancient literary scenes,
as well as diverging from them, often to present a contemporary
philosophical or political method. The course therefore
presents and examines neoclassical artworks alongside ancient
literary rexts with the intention of examining them for
accuracy and to seek the meaning in intentional variances
between the artworks and their literary sources.
