Classical To Enlightenment

These antique prints feature subjects from the Classical to Enlightenment eras.
The Classical Era (800 BC to 600 AD) centered on the magnificent Greco-Roman civilisations. It shaped our languages, politics, education, philosophy, science, art, and architecture.
The Dark Ages followed the fall of Rome in 476AD and lasted until the 1400s.
Then came the glorious Age of Discovery, Renaissance and Enlightenment. This period (~1400 to 1800) saw giant leaps forward in art, science, exploration and trade. Antique prints made then were hand-crafted and superb quality. They were often about religion, mythology, discovery and science.
