  • The Neoclassical

    The Neoclassical

    Neoclassicism is the label we use for the period of art history after the Baroque. Spanning the 18th century enlightenment era and into the beginning of the 19th c. Paradigms or broad thought trends always develop in relation to the period before them, and often shift to embrace an opposing aesthetic. In this case, the flowery ornamentation and ostentatiousness of the baroque and the rococo eras, gave way to the embrace of the clean lines and pared back style of classical Greek and Roman antiquity. Today we will discuss: -Alexander Pope's translation of Homer's Iliad. 1715-1720. https://www.gutenberg.org/files/6130/6130-h/6130-h.htm -Sir G.
