Who was the court sculptor of Alexander the Great?

Answer:

LYSIPPUS

Lysippus of Sicyon, in the Peloponnese, was a contemporary of Alexander the Great, who made him his court sculptor, decreeing that no one should paint his portrait but Apelles, and no one should make his statue but Lysippus. His works were all in bronze, and are said to have amounted to 1,500 in number. They represented Alexander and his generals in various characters, Hercules in many aspects, and celebrated athletes of the most naturalistic type.
