Classicism (art)

(Artistic Scene)

Classicism is an aesthetic movement that sees in ancient classic art the moment of highest excellency that the man could reach as a creative being.

Therefore, Classicism perceives art mainly as an imitation of ancient models.

Following this vision, the artist must respect the aesthetic standards that had been decreed in ancient times, rules and regulations to get the masterpiece as close as possible to the “ideal beauty”, built on the principles of proportion, order, harmony, balance and symmetry.
