Classicism XVIIXIX Classicism, in the arts, refers generally to a high regard for a classical period, classical antiquity in the Western tradition, as setting standards for taste which the classicists seek to emulate. The art of classicism typically seeks to be formal and restrained: of the Discobolus Sir Kenneth Clark observed, "if we object to his restraint and compression we are simply objecting to the classicism of classic art. A violent emphasis or a sudden acceleration of rhythmic movement would have destroyed those qualities of balance and completeness through which it retained until the present century its position of authority in the restricted repertoire of visual images." Classicism, as Clark noted, implies a canon of widely accepted ideal forms, whether in the Western canon that he was examining in The Nude (1956), or the literary Chinese classics or Chinese art, where the revival of classic styles is also recurring feature. Classicism is a force which is often present in post-medieval European and European influenced traditions; however, some periods felt themselves more connected to the classical ideals than others, particularly the Age of Enlightenment. Classicist door in Olomouc, The Czech Republic. Villa Rotonda, Palladio, 1591  
Strict Classicism period from 1780 to the end of the XVIII century This period is characterized by strict adherence to the classical architectural orders, described by Vitruvius and Palladio later, rectangular symmetrical layout of buildings, the widespread use of colonnades, arcades, porticos, pediments. The interiors of buildings used copies or motives of antique sculptures, decorative elements known at the time of ancient civilizations. Tauride Palace (1783-1789)
High Classicism   This architectural style brought to the fore the construction of large public buildings designed emphasized monumental and with a high degree solemn pomp. Monumental sculpture as a symbol, and emphasizes the idea of ​​revealing the image of construction, organically merged in this style with the architecture Kazan Cathedral admiralty
Eclecticism the late 18th century style that would allow them to retain previous historic precedent, but create unseen designs. From a complete catalogue of past styles, the ability to mix and combine styles allowed for more expressive freedom and provided an endless source of inspiration. Whilst other design professionals (referred to as revivalists) aimed to meticulously imitate past styles, Eclecticism differed, as the main driving force was creation, not nostalgia and there was a desire for the designs to be original. The church of the Sagrada Familia inBarcelona designed by Antonio Gaudi is a notable example of eclecticism. Elements of the gothic style were merged with orientalmotifs and forms found in the natural world, resulting in a structure that was distinctive and original. Although it was designed during the peak of the eclectic period (18831926), it remains under construction today.
