Gian Lorenzo Bernini's The Ecstacy of St. Teresa - A key feature of Baroque architecture was drama and sensuality, and especially in the form of religion. He reflected the desire of the Counter-Reformation to "electrify the faithful."

Jacques Louis David's The Death of Socrates - Since this was the time that the French Revolution took place, some artists used Greek and Roman figures to depict the virtues of the French Revolution. Hubert Robert's The Terrace at Marly - Neoclassicism was also characterized by the use of contrast between ancient Roman ruins and current times. Jean-Antoine Houdon's bust of Washington - In neoclassicism, depictions of political figures, even from other countries began to grow popular. Antonio Canova's Psyche Revived by Love's Kiss - In sculpture, nudity and sensuality were celebrated as being delicate and stylistic. Romanticism: 1800 - 1880 AD
