High Hellenistic (Hellenistic, Ancient Greek (culture or style), ... Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to the zenith of the Hellenistic period, from around 220 BCE to around 150 BCE. It was initiated by the Roman victory over Macedonian and Syrian attempts at hegemony, and the relocation of power and wealth from the eastern kingdoms to Rome. It is marked by major sculptural and architectural programs that typically incorporate nostalgic references to the glory and prosperity of the Classical period. In art and architecture it is characterized by neo-Classical style and compositional patterns that are re-worked with active poses and new emotive rhetoric, as typified in major, influential works, such as the Altar of Zeus at Pergamon, and the Ptolemaic court art at Alexandria.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar het hoogtepunt van de hellenistische periode, van circa 220 tot circa 150 v. Chr., ingeluid door de Romeinse overwinning na Macedonische en Syrische pogingen een hegemonie te vestigen, en de verschuiving van macht en rijkdom van de oostelijke koninkrijken naar Rome. De periode wordt gekenmerkt door belangrijke programma’s in beeldhouwkunst en architectuur die meestal nostalgische verwijzingen bevatten naar de glorie en rijkdom van de klassieke periode. In kunst en architectuur wordt de periode gekenmerkt door neoklassieke stijlen en compositiepatronen die zijn aangevuld met actieve houdingen en nieuwe, emotionerende retoriek, zoals weergegeven in grote en invloedrijke werken als het altaar van Zeus bij Pergamon en de kunst aan het Ptolemeïsche hof in Alexandrië. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere al cenit del período Helenístico, desde alrededor del 220 a.C a alrededor del 150 a.C. Comienza con la victoria romana sobre los intentos de hegemonía de macedonios y sirios y la restitución del poder y riqueza de los reinos orientales a Roma. Es conocido por grandes programas esculturales y arquitectónicos que típicamente incorporan nostálgicas referencias a la gloria y prosperidad del período Clásico. En arte y arquitectura se caracteriza por el estilo neo-clásico y modelos compositivos que son re-trabajados con posturas activas y la nueva retórica emotiva, se caracterizan por obras principales e influyentes, como el Altar de Zeus en Pergamon y el arte de la corte de Ptolemaico en Alejandría.
