Art of Ancient Greece

From Rick Steves’ Europe.

Rick Steves’ Europe Season 12 showcases Europe’s great art and architecture. © 2024 | Ancient Greece laid the foundations of Western art. Traveling from its sun-splashed isles to the rugged mainland to bustling Athens, we trace the rise of Greek culture. We marvel at the timeless Acropolis, perfect Parthenon, and Golden Age theaters. And we watch as art evolves from stiff statues to perfectly balanced Venuses to the exuberant Winged Victory, capturing the spirit of the age. #ricksteveseurope #artofeurope #arthistory
