This website is a slide show sharing website. This particular slide show talked about Greek and Roman art. It broke down the Greek period and which techniques of art occurred at which time. It did the same with the Roman Empire and talked about the differences and the alike-ness of the Roman art to the Greek art. Greek art mainly focused on the 'Ideal' look of the sculptured person, while the Romans focused on the realistic version of the person sculpted.

Influence of Humanism, Movement, Realism, and idealism adopted from the classical ages of Rome and Ancient Greece In conclusion I feel that the art of sculpting has effected society in a great way ever since ancient times. Greek and Roman art of sculpting has influence the way modern art is portrayed and shown today. Using the characteristics of Idealism, movement and Realism, as well as studying humanism, we better understand the beauty of art & what we feel is beauty. Without the ancient Greeks and Romans portraying movement and realism in ancient art and art today we would have never learned or seen how beauty and realness is shown through ancient sculptures of battle scenes, ancient gods, and key figures through out history. Thesis: The practice of Ancient Greece and Rome sculpting has had a big influence on how art and sculptures have evolved over time & had an influence on how beauty is portrayed in different styles Renaissance Sculptures Leonardo Da Vinci; Studied human anatomy
Michelangelo; famous painter and sculptor
Artists competed with each other for paid assignments; fame
