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.

Excellent lecture. We are traveling to Greece with RS in September so now we are prepared to appreciate what we see. Because we are taking that trip, we got this lecture for free. We probably would not pay for an online lecture.

Dr. Adamson was excellent at condensing an overview of 5,000 years of Aegean history into an hour and a half. I appreciated the slides illustrating his talking points.

It is really valuable to do some related research when going on a trip to a place which is unknown to you. These lectures have been very helpful!

Although brief, only an hour, these talks are very informative, easy to follow and increase my enthusiasm for my upcoming RS trip.

A wonderful benefit of booking a trip with Road Scholar is the opportunity to prepare to get the most out of the experience by attending online classes. I’m hooked! And very grateful.

Informative, organized and very well-presented overview of over 5,000 years of art and religion in the Cycladic islands of Greece, from the Early Bronze Age Cycladic figurines to the Byzantine Empire. Wonderful pictures. Would definitely recommend.
