This chapter focuses on specialized forms of writing about art and architecture in ancient Greece and Rome, especially those produced by the practitioners of the arts themselves. The discussion begins by considering the meanings and functions of specialized writing, with particular emphasis on the relationship between writing and the artifacts themselves. The chapter then turns to an analysis of the scholarly debate about the nature and function of Greek architectural writings, many of which can be categorized as monographs. It also examines how the writings on art and architecture influenced the self-awareness of artists and architects with respect to the diachronic dimension and concludes by looking at On Sculpture , a treatise by Xenocrates of Athens. Keywords: ancient Greece , ancient Rome , architects , architecture , art , artists , On Sculpture , self-awareness , specialized writing , Xenocrates.

Modern society owes a lot to the ancient Greeks. The lives that they led, their belief system, and even the way they created buildings have left lasting impressions that can still be seen today. For many, ancient Greece is considered to be the cradle of Western civilization. The fact the people vote in a democracy, read using an alphabet, and enjoy the Olympics every couple of years can all be traced back to the ancient Greeks. There were four main social classes of people within Athens. The highest class was made up of people born in Athens. Others from different locations could never aspire to fit in with this social group.
Art of the Americas. Ancient Greek art stands out among that of other ancient cultures for its development of naturalistic but idealized depictions of the human body, in which largely nude male figures were generally the focus of innovation. The rate of stylistic development between about and BC was remarkable by ancient standards, and in surviving works is best seen in sculpture. There were important innovations in painting, which have to be essentially reconstructed due to the lack of original survivals of quality, other than the distinct field of painted pottery. Greek architecture , technically very simple, established a harmonious style with numerous detailed conventions that were largely adopted by Roman architecture and are still followed in some modern buildings. It used a vocabulary of ornament that was shared with pottery, metalwork and other media, and had an enormous influence on Eurasian art, especially after Buddhism carried it beyond the expanded Greek world created by Alexander the Great. The social context of Greek art included radical political developments and a great increase in prosperity; the equally impressive Greek achievements in philosophy , literature and other fields are well known.
