  • Description
    A Gran Tour Ancient Greek Style Painted Figure Vase 19th Century. Ancient Greek pottery, due to its relative durability, comprises a large part of the archaeological record of ancient Greece, and it has exerted a disproportionately large influence on our understanding of Greek society. The shards of pots discarded or buried in the 1st millennium BC are still the best guide available to understand the customary life and mind of the ancient Greeks. There were several vessels produced locally for everyday and kitchen use, yet finer pottery from regions such as Attica was imported by other civilizations throughout the Mediterranean, such as the Etruscans in Italy.There were a multitude of specific regional varieties, such as the South Italian ancient Greek pottery.
    The most familiar aspect of ancient Greek pottery is painted vessels of fine quality. These were not the everyday pottery used by most people but were sufficiently cheap to be accessible to a wide range of the population.
    Few examples of ancient Greek painting have survived so modern scholars have to trace the development of ancient Greek art partly through ancient Greek vase-painting, which survives in large quantities and is also, with Ancient Greek literature, the best guide we have to the customary life and mind of the ancient Greeks.
    The Grand Tour was the principally 17th- mid-19th-century custom of a traditional trip through Europe undertaken by upper-class young European men of sufficient means and rank (typically accompanied by a chaperone, such as a family member) when they had come of age (about 21 years old). From England to Greece crossing France and Italy the itinerary bring the people in touch with the heritage of classical time.
