Introduction to Greek architecture

In essence, Vitruvius provides a way of understanding how mathematics was used by the architects of the Classical Greek and Roman worlds to both solve practical problems and to create buildings which conformed to the highest aesthetic aspirations of the era. The study of the later typology of Roman amphitheaters provides a clear example of the changing role of geometry in architectural planning, as it shows innovative patterns with respect to Greek tradition and close connections between progress in mathematics and modernity in architecture.

This chapter focuses on the patronage, financing, and sponsorship of art in ancient Greece and Rome, from sculpture to portraiture and triumphal arches. It begins by analyzing issues of patronage surrounding the east pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, before turning to the collaboration between Pericles as patron and Phidias as master designer in the reconstruction of the Acropolis in Athens. It then examines how artists gained more agency in the fourth century, in part because of the cultural and political interstices that opened up between the dominance of poleis such as Athens or Elis as patrons. It also looks at the Ptolemies and Attalids as the most prolific patrons during the Hellenistic period, along with Roman kings as the primary sources of patronage, including Augustus, Tiberius, and Nero. The chapter concludes by considering private individuals as patrons and collectors of visual arts such as funerary art.

Classical Art encompasses the cultures of Greece and Rome and endures as the cornerstone of Western civilization. Including innovations in painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and architecture, Classical Art pursued ideals of beauty, harmony, and proportion, even as those ideals shifted and changed over the centuries. While often employed in propagandistic ways, the human figure and the human experience of space and their relationship with the gods were central to Classical Art. Over the span of almost years, ideals of human beauty and proportion occupied art's subject. Variations of those ideals were later adopted during the Renaissance in Italy and again during the 18 th and 19 th century Neoclassical trend throughout Europe.
This chapter focuses on the materials for example, clay, stones, and metals and techniques such as mosaic and bronze casting of art in ancient Greece and ancient Rome.
