During the Hellenistic Period I would have to say that the art work did indeed become more diverse and individualistic. I noticed during this era the art and sculptures became more realistic then eras before. Instead of focusing on the gods, kings and wealthy people, this era starting to focus on people in general. Noticed in the Old Woman sculpture how it was more detail and realistic of how a older person would actually look like. Hellenistic artist did adapt to the earlier eras of art but they also made great innovations as well. I read in a article how the Eros was the Greeks personification of love, however it is portrayed as a young child.
