I can see each side of this argument and understand where both side are coming from. However in my opinion I would have to say that Hellenistic is has more of a progression than anything. With the different sculptures and painting during the Hellenistic period you can see that they wanted art to look more real life. Take a look that the “Old Woman” and the “Sleeping Eros”. These two sculptures has much more detail as what a human of that era looks like. Its nature of art is not looking like the eras before nor is it have a less development state. So yes I would say that the Hellenistic Period was more of a progression than anything else.
