During a summer in Rome I spent many hours doing pen and ink drawings of some of the most fabulous and sculptures. Here are a few.
This magnificent piece was discovered in 1885 at the Quirinali Palace, one of two unrelated sculptures carefully buried there and discovered within a month of one another. The wiki tells you more
This is a stunning sculpture at Palazzo Altemps. It is a Roman copy done in the 2nd century of a Greek sculpture dating to 230-20 BCE.
Sarcophagus of the Spouses is an amazing terra cotta sculpture dates from circa 600 BCE. It is in Villa Giulia, itself worthy of a visit. It was found in 450 pieces and reassembled. It’s a must see!
