2. Ancient Egypt - image of Osiris

3. Ancient Greece - columns of Ionic, Doric and Corynthian order

4. Ancient Rome - triumphal arch of Orange

6. Renaissance - merchant's house

7. Baroque - an altarpiece

8. Classicism - Pantheon in Paris

9. Romanticism - Liberty Leadin the People, painting by E. Delacroix
