History from Wonderland

Lets explore art history.


Classical Greek: Athenian Red-Figure. Notice the black glazing as background, detail in figures, and remnant presence of geometric forms. This technique was developed ca. 500 BC
Pre-classical Greek: Black Figure. The black glazing was applied, then thin lines incised to add details. This example is an amphora: thin base, bulbous body, two handles, scrawny neck, wide opening. These vessels were originally used as grave markers.
