ART/ ARCHITECTURE/ SCULPTURE Lysippus, in ancient greek Λύσιππος (Sicyon, 390/385 B.C. – after 306 B.C.): was an ancient Greek sculptor who also worked the bronze. He was the last of the greatest masters of the classic greek sculpture, and worked for Alexander the Great, who Lisippo portayed several times. He mostly sculpted the bronze, in fact in “Alexander the Great on the horse” the king appears in the act of belt his enemy, even though the horse is reared. These postures and attitudes remained, for about a century, a model for the hellenistic kings and then for Roman emperors, too. He worked for several years in his town, but then he moved to different Greek (Olympia, Corinth, Rhodes, Delphi, Athens) and Italian centers (Rome e Taranto). Taranto: there is the Lysippus Art School in honor of the Greek sculptor himself.
