Archaic Greece

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Archaic Greece (800-479 BCE) is the period in Greek history after the Bronze Age collapse and before the Greco–Persian wars.[1] Their art has a more natural and realistic style.[2]

Greek art was less geometric and more naturalistic. Paintings on vases had representations of human figures, most of the time with mythical tales.[3]
