The embodiment of the ideal forms became a definition of beauty, but beauty was seen as more than a source of pleasure; it was also seen as a form of intellectual apprehension, for art makes the forms accessible to the senses.

In later periods this method was more common when institutional control of the arts was especially strong. Individual expression, on the other hand, was fostered in societies where the artist enjoyed a higher degree of social statusduring the Renaissance and the romantic era of the nineteenth century, for example.
