Item Details
Description
A Neoclassicistic Aphrodite statue modeled on the high-classical Aphrodite of the "Fréjus" type, circa 1800 - early 19th centurySmaller than life-size marble torso of an Aphrodite of the Fréjus type. The high-classical model (around 420 B.C.) is considered a creation of Kallimachos. There are numerous copies of this type from Roman times in varying degrees of fineness (including items from Pergamon and Delos as well as examples in the Naples Museum and the Louvre). The left supporting leg and the right free leg, which is set to the side, are characteristic. The figure wears an unbelted chiton that has slipped off the left shoulder, exposing the left breast. The head was previously turned to the supporting leg side. The raised right hand pulls the coat that is draped over the back over the right shoulder, which falls down to the side over the bent left arm. The left forearm pointing forward. Feet broken off just above the hocks. The left hand with the front forearm and the right arm are missing, as is the head. Probably deliberately created as a torso. Surface thoroughly cleaned. Recently mounted on a black stone base with a heavy steel pin, which does not perfectly match the axis of the statue and tilts slightly to the right. Very high quality copy of a high-class work of art, which as a type has inspired numerous works of ancient sculpture and minor arts. Height ca. 90 cm (with base 108 cm), width ca. 44 cm, depth ca. 30 cm.Provenance: From the collection of Dr. H. Lanz, Munich. Acquired in the 1980s from a French private collection in Antibes.Condition: II -
