Hellenism - The Heightening of Expression

 

The period between the death of Alexander the Great (356 - 323 BC) up to the conquest of the entire world of Greek states by the Romans (30 BC) is known today as Hellenism. In the sequel to Alexander's campaigns, Greek thought and Greek culture spread as an aftermath across what was known at the time to be practically the entire world and now reached other races, which assimilated not only the Greek language, but also art, philosophy, science, religion, mythology and much more besides. Conversely, the Greeks away from home opened up even more to the influences of other cultures.

In Hellenism, the standards for artists become less important, artists now take their inspiration from the cornucopia of life. In the Classical period, the focus was on the physique, functionality and arrangement of the human body. Physically ideal bodies were in demand. After the 3rd century BC, however, the focus is on what is individual and distinctive. Even imperfection is now portrayed: old people, children and invalids. Man is now depicted in many forms. In Hellenism, artists also take a look behind the outer façade. Physical states are meticulously interpreted: drunkenness, agitation, pleasure, desire and suffering. At the same time all possibilities for rendering the texture of skin and garment are exhausted.
