Large c. 1820 Rosso Antico Marble Model of Trajan's Column, Rome

About

Early 19th century grand tour marble architectural model of Roman column. Rosso and nero antico marble, with bronze figure. Rome, circa 1820-1830, Measures: 22” H. The triumphal column of Trajan, erected in Rome in 113 AD, has long been the subject of pictures and models of the Eternal city; prints of the monument appear in the 17th century. Models came later – an especially splendid example is a large, ornate, 1779 replica of Trajan’s column made by Luigi Valadier, who led Rome’s foremost decorative arts workshop. The offered monument is fashioned in rosso antico, an antique red marble imported to Rome in the time of Augustus. Over the course of the 19th century, models of the column were made in a variety of materials, including the range of marbles, alabasters, and bronzes. That this model appears in rosso allows us to date its manufacture to the first part of the 19th century; and the fact that the marble elements comprising it are solid rather than veneered suggests it was made circa 1820–1830. This is especially carefully carved example. Note the precision of the egg-and-dart molding (below the upper platform), the figures in the scrolling decoration of the shaft, and Latin texts at the base. Topped by a cast bronze figure, it is supported on a shallow plinths of nero antico marble, another ancient Roman stone. In wonderfully original condition, though with incorrect figure replaced with another from the period.
