ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1068576: Large Late 19th Century Grand Tour Italian Fine Quality Bronze Group Of A ‘dancing Faun With The Infant Bacchus’

Large Late 19th Century Grand Tour Italian Fine Quality Bronze Group Of A ‘dancing Faun With The Infant Bacchus’

£6,500    $8,255    €7,684
A large late 19th century (circa 1870) Grand Tour Italian fine quality bronze group of a ‘Dancing faun with the infant Bacchus’, after the antique.
 
This bronze group consists of a young naked faun carrying the infant Bacchus (the Classical God of wine) on his shoulders, the faun with cymbals in his hands gazing up at Bacchus.
 
Bacchus tries to tempt the faun with a large bunch of grapes with the faun resting his leg against a tree trunk of grapevines, an animal skin, wooden club and set of pan-pipes.
 
The original marble sculpture of the faun and infant Bacchus was found in the forum in Rome and was first recorded in the collection of the Farnese family, who formed one of the greatest collections of sculpture and painting in Renaissance Rome.
 
The figure was later sent to Naples with other sculptures from the Farnese collection and is today in the collection of the Museo Archeologio Nazionale in Naples, the figure now thought to be Roman copy of a Greek original from the third century BC.
 
This bronze is in very good condition for age, is of stable construction and can go straight into a home or collection.
