"Every age projects its own image into its art." The Neoclassical art period, or Neoclassicism, lasted from 1770 to 1820, roughly from the French Revolution to the end of the Napoleonic Wars. This artistic period drew inspiration from the time's archaeological discoveries, and attempted to recapture the values of Greece and Rome. This was far greater than earlier revivals however, there was great emphasis in historical accuracy. This period led up to that of the Romantic art period. The artists featured in this art gallery are Elisabeth Louise Vigee Le Brun and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.
