Classical Greek

Greek art dating to the period ca. 480-323 B.C. is referred to as “Classical.” Notable examples of Classical art are the monumental sculptures of marble, bronze, or terracotta that were made as free-standing works of art and to adorn such temples as the Parthenon in Athens. Greek sculpture during this time focused on portraiture and the nude figure in art, which led to the gradual development of realistic portrayals of individuals and the human figure. The Classical period is known for its extremely fine vase painting that includes red-figure, white-ground, and black glaze pottery. Great strides were also made in the development of mosaic work, wall painting, and the so-called minor arts such as jewelry, glasswork, and small scale ivory, bronze, and terracotta statuettes.
