What are some characteristics of Etruscan art?


Answer by  SarahB (158)

Etruscan art is characterized by a focus on the afterlife, as most works come from tombs. The tombs are decorated with lively figures who dance and drink. Stylistically it is closest to Archaic Greece with dark-haired, muscular figures, but iconographically it features men and women celebrating together.

Etruscan art often shows characteristics of the artist or consumer (patron) of the created work. Etruscan art is highly stylized with very little specificity. It shows some attention to religion in terms of cultural burial traditions. Etruscan art is not highly decorative and is basic and simple in constructions. The more simple styles of Etruscan art informed later Classical works.

Etruscan art is an ancient art that predates the roman empire. Most of what is left of the Etruscan art is 3D and funerary (like urns and sarcophgi). The work is not super realistic, but is instead more simplified and abstract. They often used terracotta clay so much of their work has a reddish color.
