GRAND TOUR BRONZE BUST AFTER PSEUDO-SENECA
Italian, circa 19th century
Item # 903ZEJ18L 


A fine 19th century Grand Tour bronze sculpture that was cast after the Pseudo-Seneca, this model is beautifully cast with fine hand chasing of the surfaces and chiseling of the details.  Note the impeccably formed hair and his fine skin throughout, all finished in a verdigris chemical patination that remains remarkably well preserved.

The original Pseudo-Seneca, discovered at Herculaneum in 1754, is held in the permanent collection of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples, Italy.

Measurements: 9" H x 4 1/4" W x 5" D

Condition Report:
Minor rubbing to patina of raised relief, including his left eyebrow, some strands of hair and light rubbing to his breastbone.
