Classicism (1750-1820) in the arts, refers generally to a high regard for classical antiquity as setting standards

for taste which the classicist seeks to emulate. Classicism is usually contrasted with romanticism; the art of classicism

typically seeks to be formal, restrained, and Apollonian rather than Dionysian, in Friedrich Nietzsche's well known opposition.
