Greek Art

Ancient Greek Art stands out among that of other ancient cultures for its development of naturalistic but idealized depictions of the human body, in which largely nude male figures were generally the focus of innovation. The rate of stylistic development between about 750-300 BC was remarkable by ancient standards, and in surviving works is best seen in sculpture. 

The art of Ancient Greece is usually divided stylistically into four periods: the Geometric, Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic. This page will be split into different sections so that as much as possible can be covered.
