Course Contents
As a result of the interrelations with Eastern Mediterranean civilizations Greek sculptors achieved influences from life size sculptures. Among these are the “Kore” and “Kouros”. This course aims to introduce the sculpture of late seventh-early sixth century BC. The Kore and Kouros examples are examined comparatively with the human depictions on vase painting. Architectural sculpture and relief stones are also taken into consideration. The original archaic statues in İzmir Archaeological Museum will be examined.
