2 Units - 1 Week!

Ending Egyptian Art...Beginning Proto-Greek Art

Leaving Egypt Behind and Moving Into the Aegean Sea


The Unit 2 Quiz is on Tuesday. The multiple choice portion of the quiz will be posted online Monday afternoon. The short answer and free response portion of the quiz will be administered in class on Tuesday. Please make sure you view the two short films that were posted to Blackboard this weekend:
  • Thutmose's Bust of Nefertiti
  • Hunefer's Book of the Dead

We did not review these artworks in class, but they were included in your reading of Gardner's Art Through the Ages. I also posted a timeline that includes all of the artworks for this unit arranged by kingdom. This is meant to serve as a visual reference. Please make sure you take a look while you study for the quiz.

Proto Greek

Proto Greek Art (art found in the area of the world that would become Greece) is the earliest form of what would be known as Greek art. Cycladic, Minoan, and Mycenaean cultures are all located in the Aegean Sea. This brief study of this unit will introduce us to the first true European civilizations.
