An Assortment of Boeotian Vases
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"The brilliance of Athenian art is one of the major attractions of antiquity which draws us to the civilization of Greece and the origins of western culture. It is this brilliance, however, which occasionally blinds us to the provincial and often interesting art produced in other regions of Greece. One such area is Boeotia, located north of Athens and containing the city of Thebes. The Boeotians, like their Attic neighbors, produced vases of both figured and monochrome decoration. A collection of five vases in the Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia represents both techniques of decoration and typifies the more common as well as less frequent vase shapes made in Boeotia during the sixth and fifth centuries B.C."--First paragraph.
