A podcast about an Ancient Greek Vase at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

This next podcast is about the Attic red-figure painting of the fallen hero Sarpedon on an ancient Greek calyx-krater from the archaic period (ca. 515 B.C.), painted by Euphronios. We discuss the shift from black-figure painting to red-figure, and the gradual move away from the archaic style, which was influenced by the ancient Egyptians, to the more naturalistic style of the classical period.

podcast beta

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Two Young Girls at the Piano, 1892 (Robert Lehman Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art) This is our first attempt to publish a renegade museum audio guide, inspired by the folks at Marymount Manhattan College -- Any opportunity to undermine the museum's deadly meta-narratives is enormously appealing and so we couldn't resist. We are particularly interested in the potential for podcasting in higher education, and specifically for distance learning. Please right click here to download the mp3 or listen to the podcast on the player below, and let us know what you think.
