Styles & Periods
Hellenistic Art

The Hellenistic period is marked as the period between the death of Alexander the Great and the beginning of Roman control. Few examples survive as positively identified Hellenist art, but those pieces that do show a vision with a greater emphasis on realism and expressiveness than earlier works. In sculpture, there is a larger variety of poses with extreme torsion and highly realistically rendered drapery. It is said that these differences result from a desire to break with the rigidly defined traditions of the Classical style. The Nike of Samothrace, dating c. 200 B.C.E., is an example of a dramatic use of wet drapery. The Nike wasn't discovered until 1863; before it, the Venus de Milo was discovered in 1820. The Laocoön Group, first century B.C.E., was found in Rome during the Renaissance. When it was unearthed it caused a sensation. The central male figure writhes in anguish as the gods punish him for revealing the secrets of the Greek horse to the Trojans. This innovative subject and dynamism show a new level of calculated depiction of pathos, and inspired later Renaissance master, Michelangelo.

Latest Product Reviews

I love your soy paints for my crafts. Sadly this product is no longer available at Joanne's or any other craft stores I visit. This paint is true in color, dries quickly, and if you need to cover up a mistake or start over, this paint covers up better than any other brand I have used. Especially your white onion and mushroom are a life saver for all projects. I do not understand why this product is not more popular. I brag about it all the time, especially to the craft stores. If you are a true crafter your paint, is important. Your soy paints are pure quality for all my project, and I am sad to not see them on the shelves anymore! Big Mistake; if only they had tried just one bottle of this wonderful product. That was how I learned how good they were by giving them a try.
