Are art commissions suitable for Neoclassicism?

Are art commissions suitable for Neoclassicism? Neoclassical artists can certainly offer bespoke services to prospective clients.

Neoclassicism refers to contemporary art inspired by antiquity. This art movement surfaced as a reaction against the intricately decorative and sensuous Rococo style that was the dominant art form in Europe from the 16th century onwards. A profound and renewed interest in Classical antiquity was another powerful impetus for Neoclassicism. Neoclassicism started when the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were excavated, and their architecture was explored.

Prominent Neoclassicism artists Gavin Hamilton and Angelica Kauffman were strongly inspired by artistic trends found in uncovered classical paintings and sculptures.
