Praxiteles: Aphrodite of Arles, 360 BC, Roman copy, marble (Paris, Musée du Louvre); Photo credit: Erich Lessing/Art Resource, NYClassical Greek art will feel familiar to many of you.  From the enormous columns of its architecture, to the idealized human forms of its sculptures, Greek art is not only recognizable, but it remains influential today.  The study of Greek art will show us the emergence of the classical values of harmony, rationalism, and individualism that still inform our world view.
