Item Details
Description
Ca. AD 100 - 300 A Roman marble head of a woman, possibly from the imperial family, carved from Paros marble with heavily lidded almond-shaped eyes, a straight nose, fleshy cheeks, and a closed mouth. Her hair, with carefully cut locks, is pulled back from her face, tied at the nape of her neck, and secured in a way that is typical of the second century AD. The stylised production of the hairstyle, combined with the use of Paros marble in Greece, evokes thoughts of a provincial Roman production from the Mediterranean region. For similar see: I Borghese e l’Antico (2011), p. 116., inv. VB51. Size: 50mm x 45mm; Weight: 125g Provenance: Private UK collection; Ex. M. H. collection, Kensington, acquired on the UK art market in the 1970s. This item has been cleared against the Art Loss Register database and comes with a confirmation letter.
