Contemporary Statuary in Early Greece

Contemporary Statuary in Early Greece Traditionally, the vast majority of sculptors were compensated by the temples to decorate the elaborate pillars and archways with renderings of the gods, but as the period came to a close it became more common for sculptors to present ordinary people as well because many Greeks had begun to think of their religion as superstitious rather than sacred. Portraiture came to be commonplace as well, and would be accepted by the Romans when they conquered the Greeks, and on occasion affluent families would order a depiction of their progenitors to be placed inside their huge familial tombs.Contemporary Statuary Early Greece 944491758303739.jpg The usage of sculpture and other art forms varied over the years of The Greek Classical period, a duration of creative growth when the arts had more than one goal.

The Beginnings of Contemporary Wall Fountains

The Beginnings of Contemporary Wall Fountains Hundreds of ancient Greek documents were translated into Latin under the authority of the scholarly Pope Nicholas V, who led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455. Beautifying Rome and making it the worthy capital of the Christian world was at the core of his ambitions. Beginning in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent reconstruction at the behest of the Pope.Beginnings  Contemporary  Wall Fountains 950061986834.jpg The ancient Roman custom of building an imposing commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The Trevi Fountain now occupies the area previously filled with a wall fountain crafted by Leon Battista Albert, an architect employed by the Pope. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
