When Alexander died, the fragile construction of a universal Greek empire collapsed and his lieutenants divided the vast empire. But a new world was born: the Hellenistic world. This word was formed from the term Hellenist which, after the Greek conquests, referred to the Orientals won by Hellenic civilization. The Hellenic world is therefore a world where the Greek universe and the Eastern universe, which had never been ignored, came into even closer contact and sometimes even melted. The old art centres declined to the benefit of the new capitals: Pergamos, Alexandria, Antioch, Rhodes, etc..

In this new environment, Greek art was transformed; abandoning its creative strength, it became a game. Hellenistic sculpture reflects this new trend particularly well. Since the beginning of the way opened by the art of the IVth century, in particular by the Athenian Praxitèle who dared to represent naked goddesses, Hellenistic art in turn produced innumerable naked Aphrodite. But, while Praxitèle sought to achieve the ideal beauty, Hellenistic art for a much larger clientele only sought to satisfy a refined realism and sensuality.
