Really great, learnt heaps but the narrator's constant deep breathing was distracting. Otherwise, very informative. Looking forward to the Roman one now.
I am blind, so I can't Google the artefacts under discussion in order to view them. But I got a lot out of this course. The lecturer describes the salient features of the buildings, paintings and sculptures well, so I was able to picture them in my mind's eye. She gives an overview of the historical background which influenced the direction that the art took. The change in emphasis from the community to the individual, and the changes in the way humans were portrayed, was interesting. I've already downloaded the companion lectures on Roman art and archaeology.
