Geometric Style


in art, one of the early stages in the development of ancient Greek art during the ninth and eighth centuries B.C. Vase painting in geometric style attained a high level of artistic mastery. The clear and structured decoration on a vase decorated in the geometric style is composed of horizontal bands of various designs, including frets, crosses, and circles. In the mature geometric style (Dipylon vases of the eighth century B.C.) there were also simple, strongly geometrical drawings of men. A related style can often be seen in small sculpture and reliefs on carved jewelry ornamentation.
