Images of Women in Ancient Times

Art History Faculty member Kate Casprowiak will offer an art history lecture at the Kirkland Art Center on Thursday, February 13, 2014 – 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

Goddesses, harpies, nymphs, amazons and the occasional beautiful mortal make up the majority of female characters represented in Classical Greek art.  This lecture will analyze the types of women depicted in ancient art and thus provide a foundation for understanding the limited range of female identities recurrent in art and the media for the next couple thousand years.   This lecture is the second in a series that analyzes the role of women in the art.
