Greek Painting of the Hellenistic Period c. Some Background Since the 18th century, Greek sculpture has been the object of something akin to idolatry, and only recently have we been able to put it more in context. This is not to say that sculpture was the only form of Greek art generally appreciated, but the widespread success of books by Johann Joachim Winckelmann , followed in by that of Lessing's Laocoon, with its extensive theorization of the famous Vatican group, Laocoon and His Sons BCE , served to focus interest on sculpture. It is mainly in connection with sculpture that we have tended to speak of "the Classical beauty of Greece". It is sculpture that is currently held to be the most representative and indeed the most excellent of the arts of ancient Greece. And it is an art with which we have the good fortune to be particularly well acquainted.

The History of Sculpture
The Thinker - Wikipedia
Modern sculpture 19th-century beginnings The origins of modern art are traditionally traced to the midth-century rejection of Academic tradition in subject matter and style by certain artists and critics. Painters of the Impressionist school that emerged in France in the late s sought to free painting from the tyranny of academic standards narrative, conventional illusionism and to explore the subjective effect of perceived nature. This expansive notion of visual rendering had revolutionary effects on sculpture as well. The French sculptor Auguste Rodin found in it a new basis for life modelling and thus restored to the art a prestige that it had hardly possessed for more than two centuries. Eventually, Rodin even worked with mere fragments such as broken torsos, and he enormously enlarged the range of figure composition.

Rodin based this on The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri , and most of the figures in the work represented the main characters in the poem with The Thinker at the center of the composition over the doorway and about larger than most of the other figures. Some critics believe that it was originally intended to depict Dante at the gates of Hell, pondering his great poem. Other critics reject that theory, pointing out that the figure is naked while Dante is fully clothed throughout his poem, and that the sculpture's physique does not correspond to Dante's effete figure. The figure was designed to be seen from below and is normally displayed on a fairly high plinth, although the heights vary considerably chosen by the various owners.
