Homer
White marble. II century
Roman Sculptor

This idealised portrait of the blind poet, author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, depicts him as an old, bearded man, a typology established in the 3rd century BC. In the 18th century the interest in establishing the appearance of figures from Antiquity led the bust’s owner, José Nicolás de Azara, to identify it as the philosopher Plato, whose name he had inscribed on it.

Greek Youth
White marble. 200 - 217
Roman Sculptor

The Greek word “neoni” inscribed on this portrait means “young”, but it could also be the name of this unknown sitter, Neon. With regard to his appearance, the hairstyle recalls that of Alexander the Great and the features those of Antinous. This head can be approximately dated to the period of the Emperor Caracalla, a great admirer of Alexander.

Fortuna
White carrara marble. 150 - 200
Roman Sculptor

The goddess Fortuna holds a cornucopia and a rudder resting on a globe. The statue is based on a Greek original, an Artemis by the School of Polyclitus (4th century BC), as may be seen from the similarity in the band across her bust. The head and left hand are later additions. Christianity did little to undermine faith in Fortuna, who was extremely popular in Rome.

Apollo with Zither
White marble. 175 - 200
Roman Sculptor

This statue is a Roman copy of a late Hellenistic statue (c. 100 B. C.) which, in turn, was inspired by the main statue of the temple of Apollo Sosianus in Rome, made by the Athenian sculptor Timarchides (c. 150 B. C.). The god is represented as the guide of the muses and the source of divine inspiration, playing his favourite instrument with his (now lost) right hand.

Naked Youth
White marble. S I - II century
Lombardo, Tullio (Workshop Of); Roman Sculptor

For many years considered a Roman work from the Hadrianic period, this marble is now known to be Italian and close in style to the work of Tullio Lombardo. It is notably similar to his figure of Adam executed for the funerary monument of the Vendramin family (1490-94), now in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.

Red marble, Black marble. Before 1851
Roman Sculptor

Given by Pope Pius IX (1792-1878) to Queen Isabel II of Spain, it reproduces the so-called Flaminian Obelisk in the centre of the Piazza del Popolo in Rome. Its attribution remains uncertain; it may have been made in the circle of the sculptor and mosaicist Benedetto Boschetti, who made high quality souvenirs in the mid-nineteenth century and was awarded a medal at the Great Exhibition in London i
