Classical

Variously defined; generally of or pertaining to a past time in which things were seen as ordered and belonging to a period of high culture or a golden age. Typically Ancient Greece and Rome are viewed as the beginning of the “Classical” era and style. In the arts “Classicism” experienced many periods of revival, most notably during the Renaissance when artists and intellectuals sought a return to the forms and ideals of the Ancient civilizations. The definition in its broadest sense is used to describe perfection of form, with an emphasis on harmony and unity of design and a restraint of emotion.
