Sample text

Jointly with his contemporaries Praxiteles and Lysippos, Skopas may be considered to have completely changed the character of Greek sculpture; they initiated the lines of development that culminated in the schools of Pergamum, Rhodes and other great cities of later Greece. At the Renaissance it was especially their influence which dominated Italian painting, and through it, modern art. E. National Archaeological Museum of Athens, Athens (Greece). Marble. Museo Pio Clementino, Vatican (Italy).

In this piece we can see the ideals of High Classical period sculpture fully realised. At the same time realistic and idealistic, the sculpture shows a lifelike, but perfect, body, each muscle articulated, the figure frozen in a relaxed, life-like pose. The nudity of the figure also alludes to the athlete, who in Greece would have practised or competed in the nude, and also to the mythical hero, a reminder that the man represented here was no ordinary warrior, but a semi-divine hero, an appropriate offering for one of the great sanctuaries of the Greek world.

Greek sculptor, Myron worked almost exclusively in bronze. The cow seems to have earned its fame largely by serving as a peg on which to hang epigrams, which tells us nothing of the animal’s pose. His face is calm and untroubled, but every muscle in his body is focused in effort. His face of the Marsyas is almost a mask; but from the attitude we gain a vivid impression of the passions affecting him. The bodies of his men are of far greater excellence than the heads. He was a somewhat older contemporary of Phidias and Polykleitos.
