Neoclassicism was the favorite style of Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson, and made Josiah Wedgwood's fortune. The most pervasive style in the history of European art, it was deployed in the design of houses, churches, museums, banks, shops and items of daily use ranging from teapots to textiles. This book is the first to embrace all manifestations of the style, not only its broad territorial scope, but also its versatility in every branch of art.

From Our Editors

David Irwin’s Neoclassicism takes a look at the revival of classical artistic styles that took place in Europe from 1750 to 1830. Irwin discusses the archeological findings of the day, findings that had begun to unearth a greater variety of classical Greek and Roman works than ever before. Everything from architecture to paining was caught up in the artistic revival, and this text is an essential look at the attitudes of this period.
