Classical Art encompasses the cultures of Greece and Rome and endures as the cornerstone of Western civilization. Including innovations in painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and architecture, Classical Art pursued ideals of beauty, harmony, and proportion, even as those ideals shifted and changed over the centuries. While often employed in propagandistic ways, the human figure and the human experience of space and their relationship with the gods were central to Classical Art. Over the span of almost years, ideals of human beauty and proportion occupied art's subject. Variations of those ideals were later adopted during the Renaissance in Italy and again during the 18 th and 19 th century Neoclassical trend throughout Europe. Connotations of moral virtue and stability clung to Classical Art, making it attractive to new nations and republics trying to find an aesthetic vocabulary to convey their power, while, later, in the 20 th century it came under attack by modern artists who sought to disrupt and overturn power and traditional ideals.

Classical Greek and Roman Architecture: Examples and Typologies
An order in architecture is a certain assemblage of parts subject to uniform established proportions, regulated by the office that each part has to perform. The three orders of architecture—the Doric , Ionic , and Corinthian —originated in Greece. To these the Romans added, in practice if not in name, the Tuscan , which they made simpler than Doric, and the Composite , which was more ornamental than the Corinthian. The architectural order of a classical building is akin to the mode or key of classical music ; the grammar or rhetoric of a written composition.
This chapter focuses on the patronage, financing, and sponsorship of art in ancient Greece and Rome, from sculpture to portraiture and triumphal arches. It begins by analyzing issues of patronage surrounding the east pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, before turning to the collaboration between Pericles as patron and Phidias as master designer in the reconstruction of the Acropolis in Athens. It then examines how artists gained more agency in the fourth century, in part because of the cultural and political interstices that opened up between the dominance of poleis such as Athens or Elis as patrons. It also looks at the Ptolemies and Attalids as the most prolific patrons during the Hellenistic period, along with Roman kings as the primary sources of patronage, including Augustus, Tiberius, and Nero. The chapter concludes by considering private individuals as patrons and collectors of visual arts such as funerary art.

В то же самое мгновение Сьюзан опять бросила взгляд на руку Танкадо, на этот раз посмотрев не на кольцо… не на гравировку на золоте, а на… его пальцы. Три пальца. Дело было вовсе не и кольце, a в человеческой плоти.
