English Neoclassicism, which began its development no later than the French one, had its own peculiarities and was more related to Romanticism. Therefore, it was often intertwined with Neo-Gothic, and later on became associated with the “New French Style”. In 1717 architect K. Campbell started to use ancient forms in his projects. George III style (1760-1820), with its successive alternating styles, namely, “Adam”, “Hepplewhite”, and “Sheraton”, named after the leading masters Robert Adam, George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton, is often referred to as English Classicism. The main feature of George III style is connection of the French Neoclassicism of Louis XVI style elements with “Pompeian”, “Etruscan” and decorative elements of traditional English Gothic style.
