Series of lectures by the Musée du Louvre Louvre Lectures Masterpieces of Greek Pottery

In conjunction with the closing of the 10th Presentation of the Louvre - DNP Museum Lab, Sophie Marmois, documentary researcher in the Department of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities at the Musée du Louvre, will present a lecture entitled.
After the lecture, participants are cordially invited to a special tour of the tenth Presentation.

The closing lecture of the 10th Louvre-DNP Museum Lab presentation, Masterpieces of Greek Pottery, will discuss the evolution of Greek pottery from the Geometric period (9th–8th century BC) to the Classical period (5th–4th century BC), drawing on the most prestigious works from the collections of the Musée du Louvre.
Indeed, the museum possesses one of the largest collections of Greek pottery in the world, which is displayed in the nine rooms of the Galerie Campana. These vases, which are remarkable for the richness of their iconography (mythological scenes, scenes from epic poems and scenes of everyday life), also enable visitors to discover a wide variety of forms (amphorae, kraters, cups, etc.), techniques (black-figure, red-figure, etc.) and styles. They are for the most part attributed to illustrious workshops, such as those of the Dipylon Master, Exekias and Douris.
(French-Japanese simultaneous interpretation will be provided.)
