Zeuxis

Zeuxis, famous Greek painter, born at Heraclea, and who flourished from 420 B.C. to the close of the century; was unrivalled in rendering types of sensuous, specially female, beauty, and his principal works are his pictures of “Helen,” “Zeus Enthroned,” “The Infant Hercules Strangling the Serpent”; he is said to have given away several of his works rather than sell them, as no price could pay him for them.
