classical / theme
Comprehending and completing that which has come before, refining, perfecting, and streamlining, the classical is that example which first and most compellingly comes to mind: a controlled delight in form. Poise, firmness, elegance, and strength are characteristic, as are quality, longevity, and the ability to inspire -- somehow -- the new and revolutionary.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
