The Emperor Hadrian

1600 - 1650. Marble Galería Jónica Baja Norte

This portrait of Hadrian (117-138 AD) does not follow a specific classical model, freely interpreting elements such as the curls of his hair and his expression. It may have belonged to Queen Christina of Sweden (1626-1689). It is technically comparable to the bust of Caligula (E00375).
