In art, it is very common to compare two bodies of work. One example of the comparison of art is the Statue of David by Michelangelo and Donatello. In my paper, I will be comparing the Kroisos and the Kritios Boy. Both of these bodies of work are statues made around the same time period, 480 and 530 BCE. As any normal comparison, both pieces have similarities that are shared and differences that make them unique.

Sculpture was one of the most popular forms of art in the ancient world. In cultures all around the globe, from Mayan culture to Roman, relief sculpture could portray the most significant aspects from said cultures.

Another aspect the Greeks likely stole was the body types used in the art piece since both figures have a slim build, flat abdominal area, and thick
Another example of Etruscan funerary art is Cinerary Urn. This piece displays the common convention of creating a model of the departed reclining atop the lid. Once again mythology was incorporated, and the front displays a battle between Greeks and

The art and sculpture represented

Not all Roman art is imitated from the Greeks. Greek sculptures measurements were related to human scale and organic form of the human body (anatomy). Greek artists signed their works, which in time made them famous.
Response Paper 1 Justin Chau For my research paper, I am going to two about two types of art throughout certain time periods in history. What I am going to compare and differentiate are types of art within the Prehistoric time period, and the Roman time period.

Uncontrolled emotionalism and shameful truth were now common characteristics to most of them. Still throughout the hellenistic, many sculptures were distinguished by their calmness, grace, and compassion for human suffering. The Ancient Greek sculptures were commonly made from stone or wood and very few of them are still existing to this day. Many were made to reflect the image of a freestanding human form even when the statue was of a god, and for this reason many of the sculptures were naked, the Greeks saw nudity as something beautiful.
