Polykleitos with Kassandra

Polykleitos was a Greek sculptor of bronze statues whose art was so celebrated that it was one of the chief sources of income for his home city of Argos during the Peloponnesian War.

He was renowned for his doctrine on beauty, in which he defined it as an equation derived from the commensurability of all the parts of the body.[1] His known work, titled Kanon, described the perfect system of proportions for each part of the body.[2]

Biography

Around 431 BCE, Polykleitos was commissioned by priestesses from the village of Linou in Elis to create a statue of the Spartan misthios Kassandra. During his journey to the village, he was robbed by bandits who stole his tools.[1]
