Italian Statuary White Marble Medici Vase after the Classical Greek

Estimated Production Time23-24 weeks

About

The original vase was probably Greek and was sculpted in Athens in the 1 century B.C. It was part of the ancient and iconic collection of Villa Medici, an important Villa in Rome. The vase reappeared in the 1598 inventory of the Villa Medici, Rome, but its origin is unknown. Transferred from the villa in 1780, it has ever since been displayed in the Uffizi Gallery, today in the first-floor Verone sull’Arno overlooking the River Arno. It was often illustrated in engravings, the most famous of which is by Stefano Della Bella; he depicted the young Medici heir who would become Grand Duke Cosimo III seated, drawing the vase. Often paired as garden ornaments since the later 17th century with the similar Borghese Vase, they are two of the most admired and influential vases from antiquity. The place of the Medici Vase in the Western canon of Greek and Roman remains may be gauged by its prominent position in the composed views or capricchie that were a specialty of the Roman painter Giovanni Paolo Panini, to pick the outstanding example. Angelica Kauffman painted the second Lord Berwick on his Grand Tour seated beside the vase. Many "copies", sometimes rather loose, were made to decorate palaces or gardens, Versailles Gardens are decorated with many of these beautiful vases.
