Art History

The beginning of the Hellenistic period in Greece is generally dated to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. Hellenistic kingship would remain the dominant political form in the Greek East for nearly three centuries. Royal families lived in splendid palaces, and Hellenistic kings became prominent patrons of the arts. They commissioned public works of architecture and sculpture, as well as private luxury items that demonstrated their wealth and taste.
