Neoclassic Art.


Time Period
The Neoclassical Art movement began in the 1700's and lasted until late 1850's.

Overview
Several of Neoclassical artists incorporated Greek and Roman elements into their paintings and included mythological creatures and figures which became very common for this time period. Additionally, both paintings and sculptures were serious, emotional and heroic. Artists of this time period used brilliant colours with highlights to show moral narratives of "self denial" and "self sacrifice". Neoclassical sculptures also involved the same subjects but was more restrained from theatrical Baroque sculpture and less whimisical then Rococo.
