Taught by Professor Diana K. McDonald | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
Revisit some of the masterpieces you have seen in this course, compare them to contemporary works that draw from ancient sources, and review some of the universal themes you have explored—especially animals, fertility, death, and rulership. These themes bind humans in nearly every civilization, and the themes are reflected in its art.
