...I know basic history, yes. And that's honestly kind of my point. The Roman Empire didn't just up and leave, and people didn't "forget" how to draw, or sculpt. People continued doing what they'd done before. People in the west didn't bring down the Empire in some cataclysmic event that kept culture back for a thousand years. They basically were Roman by the time the Empire in the West had fallen.
But styles changed. Economy played a big role- you couldn't nearly as easily afford to pay a full-time artist to do art. And you get different art- some of it very good, as well (see above).

I agree with you, so I rescind my red thumb. Apologies.
However, were discussing which was better, medieval art, or greco-roman art. He said medieval (specifically gothic), I said greco-roman (using the parthenon as a worst-of example), and then you threw in a roman example and then sounded like you were using that as an example of why my greco-roman example did not validate my point and that yours was better? Hence my confusion.
TLDR; I agree with you, but that's not what we were really debating.

I was using a medieval Roman example. The debate wasn't over Roman vs. Germanic art or something, it was Roman vs. Medieval.
I went early medieval 'cause that's what we should really be talking about here (seeing as late medieval/renaissance copied off the Romans only it used better technology, so of course it's going to look better).
