Classical Art History
The period of the Greek Empire from 500 BC is marked as the classical art period. In this art period, the human figure was celebrated by the Greek artists. Great importance was given to minute details. This was the first time that we see importance given to quality.
Even after conquering the Greeks, the Romans regarded their art as very superior and imported and copied them in a great amount. But thanks to the Romans, their copying and importing is the only thing that had kept the Greek classical art alive for us to witness.
Classical art contains all the rules and regulations of art that were laid out by great artists of Greek and Romans. Classical art represents their version of the human body and the environment that they lived in.
The training and talent that we require today to develop a piece of art is similar to the training that was required in the classical period. Regardless of what art period we are in, we need to have the proper training and education.
The foundation of the classical art period is crafts. It has a sense of familiarity that we can easily relate to. It reflects the souls and shows beauty in a way that everyone can admire. If a person is a little learned in art, then understanding classical art is a great fun. It has clear ideas and clear interpretations. There is no in between in classical art. Either a person understands and likes it or he does not.
One thing that the readers need to keep in mind is that the classical art period is not completely dependent on the Greek and Roman works. As soon as people hear the word classical art, they think of people dressed in flowing robes and being idolized. This is not always true. Classical art subjects may have been in any dress code. The important thing is to have the subject and characters be defined within the boundaries of classical art.
Greek people emphasized on details and regarded man as perfect. Their art was very refined and elegant which showed their own personalities. Their pottery was inscribed with images of humans and their living styles. The sculptors were so real looking that people were amazed. They thought of humans as perfect and this showed in their work.
Classical art may even be regarded as an ancestor of our modern day art culture. Our music, paintings and literature are still in many ways dependent on the teachings of these rulers so many years ago. Classical art is seen in paintings, crafts, architecture, sculptures, etc.
Even today, we see classical art works in our home décor. It is still in our hearts and people love to decorate their homes with painting of the classical period and use crockery that is inspired from this great artistic time. Your home will become the center of attraction if you display paintings and pottery from the classical period.
