Abstract

American Popular Culture is highly influenced by the Greek ideal of the ''body beautiful" as transmitted through the Renaissance and late nineteenth century. The art of ancient Greece, unique unto itself, suggested a universality that had not existed prior to the Greek culture (Lerner et al. 131). The ideal physical form, illustrated in classic works which still exist today, had high status in the Greek culture.
