Rich style referred to in the Greek art of the ancient one style form that v around the years 430/20. BC and up to approx. 400/390 BC. Chr. Was enough. Basically it means a kind of mannerism of the high classical period . Characteristic of the clothing are an overly rich folds in an almost playful movement, an overly rich decor . These include the figures of the frieze at the temple of Nikes and the caryatids or cores of the Erechteion on the Acropolis in Athens . The Nike des Paionios , which was in front of the Temple of Zeus in Olympia , also belongs here in terms of time and style. In addition to Paionios, Alkamenes and Agorakritos in particular are to be mentioned in their later works, but above all Callimachos with his work, which is difficult to grasp, as typical representatives of the rich style in sculpture.

This style is not only expressed in sculpture . The simultaneous Greek vase painting conveys a certain impression through the color of the decor, which developed in the Rich Style , whereby the ornamental design was probably primarily the carrier of the color. In vase painting, in which the Reiche style is also referred to as the ornate style , there are also attempts at a three-dimensional representation for the first time, with which a spatial illusion is to be created.
