Art as an interpretation of history during the Hellenistic Age
In this work, I have not been concerned so much with the trivial events and facts of art in history, as I have desired to interpret in a broader sense the political and social condition of the age through the medium of its sculpture and its monuments. Art was always significant of the culture of races and peoples, but never more so than in the Hellenistic age. Every old and new center recorded unconsciously its deeds and thoughts in stone, or metal, and they survive, in part, to tell us the story.
