Item Description

Bronze a figure of Bacchus;  after a model by Vincenzo Gemito (1852-1929). A large reproduction of a bronze figure of Bacchus (Dionysus), the Roman god of wine, discovered in Pompeii in 1862, and today in the Museo Nazionale Archaeologico in Naples. Long thought to be a figure of the youth Narcissus, he stands looking downwards, left foot forward, naked except for sandals and a small animal skin around left arm, his right hand raised in admonition. The statuette is fixed to a circular separately cast base, decorated with palmette pattern. In very good condition and with a lovely patinated finish. 640mm high, 310mm wide and 260mm deep. Italian. Circa 1890.
