Classicisme or Neo-classicism. (1770 -1830)

In France in Italy and England one speaks about neo-classicism to avoid any confusion with the traditional tendency of the baroque but in the countries of German language this style is indicated under the term of classicisme. Moreover in France one distinguishes the styles Louis XVI and Worsens. Classicisme can be regarded as reaction to excesses of the Rococo and recommends a return to the reason. Born in France this style always opposed a tendency sensualist and a rationalist tendency. A fight always opposed the partisans of Rubens and those of Chick. A fight enters the defenders of the color and those of the line. Well on the classic art takes for model Greek and Roman antiquity. Its topics of predilection, heroic and moralizers take as a starting point the the history and ancient mythology.
