Neoclassicism is a new revival of classical antiquity, linked, at least initially, to
Enlightenment thought. Neo-Classical art followed Rococo and covered about a century from
1750 - 1850.
It was not a passing fad but became a way of life in revolutionary times.
Jacques-Louis David's The Death of Socrates, 1793 is a good example of Neo-Classical art.
Like all Neo-Classical art, The Death of Socrates reflected the issues of the time.
