In the Hellenistic period (323-31 B.C.) newly founded monarchies carved out of Alexander the Great's empire sought to legitimize their authority among diverse peoples across a wide geographic area. Historical commemorations--monuments celebrating actual events--were central in the making of public power at the time; they are key now to our understanding of how art and political life intersected in the Hellenistic world. The proposed study will present a comprehensive analysis of such monuments associated with the major kingdoms of the Hellenistic world, examining the artworks as active agents in making meaning, not mere reflections of it.
