Classical art then and now
From the Renaissance on, classical art dominated Western art, with classical mythology. The various myths and legends of the ancient Greek and Roman gods and heroes became a major source of subject matter for history painting. Although it varies from genre to genre, classical art is famous for its harmony, balance and sense of proportion. This movement is defined by its attention to traditional forms and symmetry. Colour is always subordinated to line and composition.
Classicism was embraced in many ways during the Renaissance in Italy, and it manifested itself in various pursuits. Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci were the first classical painters, but also the late 19th century abounds of classic artwork prints. Van Gogh, Monet and Leighton are just a few of the relevant painters.
