Thank you!
Greek and Roman art is defined as classical art which is divided into 3 primary areas including sculptures, architecture and paintings.

There are many similarities to Greek and Roman artwork, however the differences are both interesting and important for identification.

Romans conquered Greece in 146 BC and many of the artistic influences was derived from Greek art. Although, later on Romans refined their own interpretation of artwork.

Roman architecture was significantly influenced from the Greeks but eventually reformed their architecture into a distinct identity.

Greek buildings were usually constructed with marble and granite materials, while Romans used concrete and brick.

The Parthenon and Pantheon are good examples about the distinction between Greek and Roman Architecture.
Greeks were driven by the notion of perfection and was reflected in the way the constructed sculptures.
Sculptures portray an idealized perfection and were greatly concerned with poise and proportions.
Romans were interested in conveying the ideal realism through natural looking portraiture's.
Roman paintings were directly derived from earlier Greek antiquity. Greek's were known to make pottery, figurines and sculptures and were incorporated into Roman culture. Most of Roman artwork is a copied version of the Greek's. Eventually, Romans formed their own interpretation of artwork. Mosaic paintings and portraiture's are Roman artwork characteristics.
