Many marble statues that survive from antiquity are copies made during the Roman period of works created by Greek artists some five hundred years earlier. Our Torso of a Boy sculpture, a first or second- century Roman copy of a Greek original (425400 B.C.), exemplifies the high Classical style developed in Athens during the second half of the fifth century B.C. a period generally considered the peak of artistic accomplishment, and during which the Parthenon and most of the other famous buildings on the Athenian Acropolis were built and decorated.
Our Torso of a Boy is reproduced from the Roman copy of an original Greek sculpture in the Museum’s collection. It celebrates both the beauty of the human form, as well as the artistic achievement of the Classical style from Ancient Greece and Rome. Cast marble. Hand patinated. 23 1/2”H x 11”W x 6”D including base. Sorry, gift wrap is not available for this item.
