Hellenistic Greek

In the later part of the 4th century B.C., when Alexander the Great conquered much of the known world at the time – from Greece to Asia Minor, Egypt, the lands of Persia, and as far as India – the empire he created and unprecedented contact with diverse cultures gave rise to the Hellenistic period. The death of Alexander in 323 B.C. marks the beginning of the period, which extends into the first century B.C. when Hellenistic art overlaps with that of the Roman period. With the Greek empire consolidated under Alexander, artists of the time continued and even surpassed the masterworks of previous Greek artist’s sculptures in marble and bronze, as well as paintings and mosaics. Alexander’s generals succeeded him and became the first Hellenistic kings who separated the empire into kingdoms under their dynastic rule. These rulers became prominent patrons of the arts and commissioned public works of architecture and sculpture as well as luxury objects out of precious materials such as gold, silver, and ivory. Jewelry became elaborate in form and incorporated rare and precious stones, many of them coming from Asia through newly established trade routes. Created in an age of cultural contact between widely diverse peoples, Hellenistic art is distinctively rich in its subject matter and style. Although artists of the period were heavily influenced by earlier styles, they made great innovations in the realm of architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaics, and the decorative arts, which gives Hellenistic Greek art a look of richness and embellishment that superseded Classical Greek art and has barely been rivaled since.
