Title: ‘The Cyclades in Greek art’
Summary: After a glance at some precursors, the talk examines the representation of the Cycladic islands in Greek painting since the establishment of the modern Greek state, with an excursion into the poetry of Elytes.
Please join us for a presentation by Robin Barber. Robin, resident in Edinburgh, Athens and Mytilene, is the perfect reflection of the Society. Robin has a long association with the University of Edinburgh and has published extensively on Bronze Age archaeology in the Cyclades amongst a host of other subjects, including being the author of the most archaeologically grounded editions of the Blue Guide to Greece.
