After an original of 1882 by the Italian sculptor Leone Clerici.
Clerici specialised in making reproduction marble sculptures, working from his studio in Rome, and his work was always in great demand. The bust is now in a private collection.
Shown here with his female companion.
Antinoos is represented here as the youthful god Dionysos: there is some similarity to the Lansdowne Antinoos in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
|material||Cast Carrara marble. Mounted on a marble base. The beautiful white marble of Carrara in Tuscany was used for the Pantheon in ancient Rome, and was a favourite of Michelangelo. The sculptures in this collection are created using a process of 'dry casting', so that each sculpture contains over 90% marble.|
|country of origin||Made in the UK.|
|care instructions||The high quality is such that there will be no discoloration - other than natural patination and ageing - should he be placed outdoors.|
