The Persian Invasions of Greece and the "Classical Revolution" in Greek Art: A Reappraisal

This study reappraises the evidence for the beginning of the classical style (i.e., the origins and inception of the so-called Severe Style) in Greek art in the light of recent archaeological work in the field. It concludes that the style began after the Persian invasions and Greek victories of 480-479 BC and was in part a response to them.
