Neo-classicism is a style that emerged in the United Kingdom and France in the 1750's. It was initially a reaction against the excesses of the preceding Rococo style. The style was based on the designs of Classical Greece and Rome. Archaeological discoveries of the time such as those made at Herculaneum and Pompeii were a great source of inspiration.
