Abstract Table of contents Authors / Editors
The book is focused on the last works of the most famous late classical sculptor of Greece, the Athenian Praxiteles: his oeuvre from around 340 to his death in 326 BC is analytically considered.
The most important works of this master considered in this essay are the Eubuleus, the Phryne of Delphi, the Leconfield Aphrodite and the Sleeping Eros.
The last works of Praxiteles are particularly important because they shed light to the crucial moment of the decline of the free city state and of the rise of the Hellenistic model of monarchy.
With these creations our artist depicted a world of beautiful tales and of mundane beauty which will be extremely influential during the golden period of the Roman classicism as well as during the post - ancient Renaissances.


Antonio Corso attended his curriculum of studies in classics and archaeology in Padua, Athens, Frankfurt and London. He published 111 scientific essays which include several tens of articles in peer reviewed periodicals and 10 books in prestigious series.
The most important areas covered by his studies are the ancient art criticism and the knowledge of classical Greek artists.
In particular he collected in three books the written testimonia on Praxiteles and in other four books he reconstructed the life and oeuvre of this sculptor.
He also delivered many lectures and papers in conferences in several academic institutions and was awarded senior fellowships and honours by top research foundations.
Actually he is holder of a contract with the Centre of Vitruvian Studies.
