Classical Portrait Painting Defined
Sought, but couldn't find a good definition of classical painting. Surely, when referencing classical portrait painting, there exists some reasonably definitive description.
Yes, I understand it may be "simple," but when searching the Internet I came across all sorts of definitions - including time periods (1775-1825), but then found the contradictory reference to classical art referring back to the Greek, etc.
Okay, when a portrait artist is said to be using/teaching/relying on classical techniques, what is that?
