Neo-Classical

_____________________________________________________

A revival of Greek and Roman principles in a more solid and severe manner than the Renaissance and Baroque. The Greek Doric was favoured for church building in the Cape Province during the c19. In the Orange Free State Republic the more restrained Neo-Classical was favoured above the more lavish Wilhelmine/ Victorian then the vogue in the rest of the colonies, Otto HAGER being a major exponent at the time.
