|About Greek Revival Architecture
At the beginning of the 19th Century, the Greek Revival style of architecture was popularized. It is considered the last phase of the neoclassical movement and was inspired in part by a newfound access to Greece.
Greek Revival Style Mouldings
Greek Revival style mouldings typically use the echinus, portions of an ellipse, the beak mold, fillets, and chamfers. The palmette, anthemion and acanthus leaf, tendrils, honeysuckle blossoms and volutes characterize the ornamentation.
