Greek Painting in Context - Webinar Series

Moderators: Jenifer Neils, American School of Classical Studies & Dimitris Plantzos, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens 

About our Webinars: This new series of webinars considers rare surviving examples of Greek painting in its archaeological setting, namely palaces, houses, temples, and tombs. It will explore the extent to which the works’ original locations informed their pictorial programs, and demonstrate how ancient painters adapted their subjects to new contexts. Recent discoveries and new scientific advances have led to reevaluations of older material and exciting breakthroughs. In these seven webinars, expert scholars will discuss how paintings on walls and vases relate to their physical contexts as well as to their patrons. This series will be moderated by Prof. Dimitris Plantzos, author of The Art of Painting in Ancient Greece (Kapon 2018), and Prof. Jenifer Neils, Director of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
