Also known as neo-classic.
A transitional style, which originated in the 15th century in Italy and was copied nearly a century later by France, Germany, and Spain.
It is characterized by finely wrought arabesques, strings and cornices of classic profile, delicate pilasters and pediments, and a great profusion of surface color and ornament.
Among its exponents were Brunelleschi, da Vinci, and Cellini.
Its finest examples are Saint Peter's and Saint John Lateran, Rome; and the Louvre, Paris.
