Glyptothek, Munich (Germany). Musée du Louvre, Paris (France). ) The Greek sculptor, Lysippos, was head of the school of Argos and Sicyon in the time of Philip and Alexander of Macedon. His works, some colossal, are said to have numbered 1500. He was especially innovative regarding the proportions of the human male body; in contrast to his predecessors, he reduced the head size and made the body harder and more slender, producing the impression of greater height. Among heroes he was particularly attracted by the mighty physique of Heracles.

The existing works with which he is associated are the Mausoleum of Halicarnassos, and the temple of Athena Alea at Tegea. They are, unfortunately, all in extremely poor condition, but appear to be the best evidence of his style. While in general style Skopas approached Praxiteles, he differed from him in preferring strong expression and vigorous action to repose and sentiment. Another type of his was Apollo as leader of the Muses, singing to the lyre. The most elaborate of his works was a great group representing Achilles being conveyed over the sea to the island of Leuce by his mother Thetis, accompanied by Nereids.
