About

Benedetto Boschetti (c.1820-1880) The Antinous Belvedere Rome, mid-nineteenth century Bronze 36 cm high Signed: ‘B. Boschetti, Roma’ Provenance: Private collection, England According to legend, Antinous was a young man in the Emperor Hadrian’s retinue, who drowned in the Nile after attempting to save the Emperor’s life. His memory was celebrated throughout the empire for this act of self-less courage and many statues were erected in his honour. Perhaps the most famous of all resides in the Vatican’s Belvedere courtyard and provided the model for the present bronze (fig.1). Standing with his slightly head bowed, in swaggering contrapposto, the work epitomised the classical ideal of youthful male beauty. Benedetto Boschetti is considered one of the most talented sculptors and bronze casters who worked in Rome, during the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Boschetti established a successful workshop on the via Condotti, making finely cast bronze statuettes after the most famous ancient sculptures in the city. In 1867, John Murray wrote in his influential ‘Handbook for Travelers of Rome and its environs’: “This Establishment is – particularly – conspicuous for its great variety of marble works, bronzes, candelabras, table-tops, etc. besides a rich collection of the best mosaics and shell engravings.”
