Home » Glossary » Classicism

Classicism is a style of art and architecture that is characterized by a focus on classical forms and motifs, particularly those of ancient Greece and Rome. Classicism emerged in Europe in the 17th century and was used as a way to revive the ideals of classical antiquity in the face of the ornate and elaborate styles of the Baroque era. Classicism is often associated with a sense of order, balance, and harmony, and is characterized by its use of clear and simple forms, symmetry, and idealized figures. The style has had a significant impact on Western art and continues to be celebrated for its timeless beauty and elegance.
