    Neoclassicism was also, in part, a reaction against the ostentation of baroque art and Rococò school, stimulated by the discovery of roman ruins at Herculaneum and Pompeii (), along with publication in of the highly influential book “Thoughts on the imitation of Greek Works of Art File Size: 2MB. Neoclassicism was a movement whose artists looked to the classical texts for their creative inspiration in an effort to imitate classical form. The writers in particular drew on what were considered to be classical virtues simplicity, order, restraint, logic, economy, accuracy, and decorum to.

    Most fundamentally, neo-Classicism comprised a return to the classical models, literary styles and values of ancient Greek and Roman authors. In this, the neo-Classicists were to some extent heirs of the Renaissance humanists. Neoclassicism was a child of the Age of Reason (the Enlightenment), when philosophers believed that we would be able to control our destinies by learning from and following the laws of nature (the United States was founded on Enlightenment philosophy).

    Up until then, books and printed materials were generally only accessible to the aristocracy and to highly educated and specialized groups like the clergy. But in the Augustan age, advances in print technology made it possible to print books cheaply, and that meant that more and more books and other materials were printed and available at much.   Those sections can then be organized by theme: For example, art books could be grouped into Neo-Classicism, Impressionism, and Abstract Expressionism sub-sections. Shaner points out that grouping.
