Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Formerly in the Collection of Naim Attallah, the former CEO of Asprey.

    Literature:
    This particular type with the tree support at the leg is probably after a pair of bleu turquin marble statues of Antinous by Pierre-Nicolas Beauvallet (1750-1818) made circa 1810. Cf. J-M Humbert (Ed.), Egyptomania, (Paris, 1994), p. 269. Those were, in their turn, after the ancient figures of Osiris-Antinous, the most well known of which are the marble statues of Antinous found at the Emperor Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli, now in the Vatican Museums, Rome.
