The history of Greek art spans a period of nearly two thousand years, ranging from the enigmatic idols of the Cyclades to the Great Altar of Zeus at Pergamon. Today, we grant no less importance to the funerary masks of Mycenae of the Classical age as the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, or the famous Laocoon group, which overwhelmed Michelangelo

Overview

The history of Greek art spans a period of nearly two thousand years, ranging from the enigmatic idols of the Cyclades to the Great Altar of Zeus at Pergamon. Today, we grant no less importance to the funerary masks of Mycenae of the Classical age as the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, or the famous Laocoon group, which overwhelmed Michelangelo with its expressivity. In the geometry of a vase, the composition of a pediment, or the Doric style of the Temple of Artemis at Corfu, we can read the evolution of the religious, philosophical and political concerns of the Greek nation as a whole. In Greece, the land that has left us more masterpieces than any other, lie the roots of our Western culture.
