Grand Tour Bronze of Hermes, Italian Chiurazzi Foundry

About

This sculpture is after the 1st century BC bronze original in the National Museum of Archeology in Naples excavated at Pompeii in the late 19th century. It depicts the god Hermes. The entry in the 1908 museum catalog reads: '126170. Perseus. A statuette found at Pompeii It is one-fifth of life size. He is naked but for a chlamys thrown over his left shoulder. His feet are winged. The pureness of one and the treatment of the hair, make this work remarkable and establish it Greek origin. It was a good deal damaged when discovered.' The break in the leg is intentional because the original also has this break. No markings but most likely cast by the Fonderia Chiurazzi in Naples which was established in 1870 and made copies of works excavated at Pompeii.
