Glossary Words

neo-classical

(from mid-18th Century) When this style took over from the rococo, its heavier forms took inspiration from the baroque. It featured highly decorative swags and borders, and other classical motifs, popularised by the contemporary archaeological finds at Herculaneum and Pompeii. See Adam's style.
