Answer: A. Abstract forms were often used to represent human figures.

During the Hellenistic period, abstract forms were in no way used to represent human figures. During this time, sculptures fully embraced naturalism. Figures looked more like individuals instead of ideas and a full range of emotions were portrayed. Three main qualities unique to Hellenistic painting style were three-dimensional perspective, the use of light and shade to render form, and the Trompe-I’œil realism. Very few forms of Hellenistic Greek painting panels and those painted on stone. Generally, Hellenistic art focuses on theatricality, drama, and the viewer.
