To Greece to Italy - Classical Influences on Later Art

#greeksculpture #lysippus #manneristpainting #parmigianino

Below is an example of how Greek Classical culture influenced the Renaissance and how one medium sculpture can effect another painting.

Compare these two images

The first is one of several Roman copies of a sculpture by the late Classical Sculptor #Lysippus.

This is a Mannerist 16th century painting by Parmigianino 

Anyone know if he had access to the Villa D'Este copy before it was moved to the Vatican Museum?
