Unique Midcentury Polychrome Painted Plaster Bust of Apollo Belvedere


Standing almost 23 inches tall this bust is based on the Apollo Belvedere statue in Rome. It is painted in an ivory color and the draped robe is Pompeian red accented by the gold finish clasp. The Apollo Belvedere or Apollo of the Belvederealso called the Pythian Apollo is a celebrated marble sculpture from Classical Antiquity. It was rediscovered in central Italy in the late 15th century, during the Renaissance. From the mid-18th century it was considered the greatest ancient sculpture by ardent neoclassicists, and for centuries epitomized ideals of aesthetic perfection for Europeans and westernized parts of the world. It is now found in the Cortile delle Statue of the Pio-Clementine Museum of the Vatican Museums complex.
