The Era of Neoclassicism
The Classical period of art where decorative and visual arts, literature, theater, music, and architecture draw inspiration from the "classical" art and culture of Ancient Greece and Rome. In America, many artists painted portraits of very important men and women during their lifetime. Gilbert Stuart is one of the most famous American portrait artists of his time. One of his most famous paintings of George Washington appears at Crystal Bridges Museum of American art (only a little over 2 hours away). Wow!!!
