Around 1800, Greek architecture as seen through the
medium of etchings and engravings gave new impetus
to Neoclassicism, now called the Greek revival. Although
at first look this reintroduction of classic forms
seems reactionary, it was really a response to the
excess of Rococo and should be seen as a precedent
to the modern era. It was a search for the ideal of
Greek purity among the cacophony of nineteen-century
In American architecture, Neoclassicism was one expression
of the American Renaissance movement, ca 1880-1917.

architect and the father of American architecture.
The Baltimore Basilica, the first Roman Catholic cathedral
in America, is considered by many experts to be Latrobe's
The last manifestation of this American classic style
was in Beaux-Arts architecture and its large public
projects were the familiar Lincoln Memorial, the National
Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the American
Museum of Natural History's Roosevelt Memorial.

should have. Period Arts Fan Company offers the Flute
