...Ancient Egypt, Renaissance Italy, South Asia, Modern Europe.
Most cultures have beliefs about death and the afterlife, and produce objects related to these beliefs. Some of the most beautiful objects created through the ages have been made to sustain the soul, honor a deceased individual, or illustrate a divine being. In this seminar course, students will get an introduction to the beliefs and art of four cultures through lectures, discussions, and visits to the Museum's galleries.
