Neoclassical Paintings

the neoclassical period

Neoclassicism is a term that represents the movements that took place in Western visual and decorative arts that were inspired by the art and culture from Ancient Greece and Rome. Neoclassicism was a revival of this Classical style; where technical skill, balance, and exact form were favored over the artist’s individuality.
