Art of Antiquity

In relation to Fine Arts, antiquity refers to the period centered around the civilisations of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece, roughly 1000 BC to 600 AD. 

Its most recognisable characteristics include sophisticated styles of pottery, technically advanced metal work, mythology, religious themes, mosaics and marble sculpture. There are often idealized depictions of the human form, in both painting and sculpture. This period of art has seen multiple revivals throughout art history, the era of most significant note being the Renaissance period. Neo-Classicism is popular today, as seen in Baroque and Rococco movements as well as in Art Deco design

Contemporary artists continue to be inspired by the classical art movement, creating works that evoke the original pieces from antiquity. Artsper has curated the best of these to help you find the perfect piece to add to your collection.
