Etruscan art was made by the Etruscan people in central Italy between the 10th and 1st centuries BC. Around 750 BC, it was heavily influenced by Greek art, which the Etruscans brought from Greece but which always kept its own style. In this tradition, terracotta sculptures of people, especially life-size ones on tombs or temples, wall paintings, and metalwork, especially bronze work, were especially strong. High-quality jewellery and gems with designs on them were made. Image by Paolo Villa is licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0.
