Styles & Periods
Etruscan Art

Etruscan civilization, seated on the Italian peninsula around 700 B.C., borrowed much of its culture from the Greeks before it. Alphabets and populations were shared with Greece, and a flowering of writing resulted. The Etruscans were powerful people, with a territory that extended from Naples to present-day northern Italy. Bronze tombs characterize Etruscan art. The first tombs were bronze urns with heads in the shape of the deceased and great mounds covering stone rooms. Later tombs, from the height of Etruscan civilization, were virtually simultaneous in date to the art of the Aegean. During this monumental period, figurative tombs in terracotta were made. Funerary chambers held murals and beautiful tombs with couples carved on the top. The colors of these murals are glorious and show figures of musicians, fisherman, flocks of birds and schools of fish. The tombs are indeed resplendent, and show the belief of the funerary site holding both body and soul. Etruscans were not only masters of the afterlife, but also of urban planning. Romans emulated their examples and learned how to build bridges and aqueducts from the Etruscans.

Latest Product Reviews

This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!

In my opinion, these are the BEST detail brushes out there, and I've tried half a dozen other brands. I've even bought high end Kolinsky sable minis, but they can't get the detail that these can. Mister Art has the best prices on these brushes by far.

This product was great. I painted my glass vases golden with this spray paint. I also painted my plum tree trunk with golden Krylon Premium Metallic Spray paint.
