Becoming Classical: art and the revolution in values in fifth-century B.C. Greece, Faculty of Classics, Room G.19 , Saturday, 19. October 2019

We associate Classical Greece with the impassive and remarkably uniform young men that populate the Parthenon frieze and classical gravestones. But we rarely ask why these young men dominate Classical art. Prof Robin Osborne looks at the revolution that brought the Classical man into existence, and the complete transformation of values that these Classical figures carry with them.
