Neoclassicism was associated with an era beginning from the end of the 17th century and went on through the 18th century. “The Neoclassicism art movement came from a combination of the last half of Baroque art to the burgeoning scientific interest in classical Greek and Roman antiquity”, “This new found art of Neoclassicism led to the cause in a rapid growth of collections of antiques” (Sayre, 2010). With Neoclassicism came problems for the artist as to whether an image of a famous person or hero should be painted in traditional or contemporary clothing. The Emperor in His Study at the Tuileries painted by Jacques- Louis David painted Napoleon in his traditional uniform showing his dedication to his work.

Painters of this
