An artistic movement spanning c.a. 1750-1830, born of archaeological excavations in Rome that inspired a re-interpretation of the classical orders. Neoclassical aspirations are towards simplicity vs. colour as applied to art, sculpture, architecture, interior design, furniture making, which were exploited for their associations with democratic ideals and Imperial grandeur.
