Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl Earring; Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa; Michelangelo’s The Creation Of Adam - the history of classical art is rich, important and varied. As a genre, Classicism can be found in literature, art and architecture, and has, at its source, the Roman and Ancient Greek civilisations. Continuing to be popular among artists well into the 19th century, the classical tradition once dominated art in the Western World. Generations of successive artists have trained in the Classical tradition, with notable and influential painters including Caravaggio; Holbein; Rembrandt; Titian and countless others. Often taking religious subjects as their focus, such as the birth and life of Jesus Christ, works of classical art are diverse, beautiful and highly collectable today.
