Art Stories

 

Cycladic Figure of a Woman. Unknown. Stone sculpture. Gift of Dr. Aron and Toby Cole Krich in memory of Ely Chinoy '75, Mary Higgins Gamble Professor of Sociology and Anthropology.

Selected by Joan J. Earley-Wilcox '92

As an Ada Comstock Scholar in 1989 I was a Philosophy Major.  I took the Art History survey course and discovered this marvelous piece of sculpture and was so captivated by it I made Art History my minor.  I have gone on to obtain my Doctor of Arts, with Classics as my Major and Philosophy my Minor. My Doctoral Dissertation pertained to identifying a figure on the Parthenon Frieze by name!  All because of the Cycladic Figure of a Woman.
