More from Roma

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.

The Boxer at Rest, pen and ink

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!
