At a Glance

With small picturesque ports, lively tavernas and blue-domed churches clustered alongside white sandy beaches, the Cyclades are many people’s idyllic vision of Greece. The islands have a long and rich history which is explored in this lecture through the religious art produced there over the last five millennia. The lecture will examine the iconic minimalist figurines of the prehistoric “Cycladic Culture," known to have influenced modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore. We will look more closely at some familiar (and less familiar) masterpieces of Classical Greece produced on the islands, including the Venus de Milo, and we will navigate the development of Greek Christian art on the islands through to the modern period.
