In this 30-45-minute virtual tour with The Ringling, AP Art History students will explore the portrayal of the human condition through the ages. The art of classical Greece and Rome exerted its influence in the portrayal of the human condition throughout the major epochs of Western art history. Whether emphasizing the idealized form and heroic postures of classical sculptures or striving for more naturalistic depictions of a frailer humanity, artists of the Renaissance, Baroque, Dutch Golden Age and Neoclassicism traditions reflect the ongoing and evolving influences of Ancient Greece and Rome. This tour directly compares works of art included in the AP Art History image set to related but unknown works of art at The Ringling, and students will practice comparing and analyzing works of art.
Teachers will meet with an experienced museum educator prior to your class tour to decide upon Ringling works and comparative images from the image set to use with your students.
