The classical tradition which influenced the culture of the West for over 2000 years began in the city states of Greece. Their art and architecture laid down principles that were followed in the subsequent centuries. Hugh Ellwood will give a talk describing their earliest art forms (pottery) to their marble and bronze sculpture which revealed an extraordinary sense of realism as well as their temple architecture, technically simple but aesthetically very sophisticated.
