Roman Marble Head of Dionysus

Roman Marble Head of Dionysus

An ancient Roman marble head of Dionysus with centrally parted wavy locks of hair, head slightly turned and a floral diadem.

Ca. 2nd century AD.
Height: 10 1/2 in. (26.5 cm.)

This sensitively modeled head reflects the Hellenistic influence of the 'schools' in Asia Minor where the earlier spirit and tradition of classical sculpture lived on in the Roman period. The head would have originally fitted into a socketed body.

Acquired by the previous owner from: Antiquities, Christie's, London, 21 April 1999, lot 181. Formerly in a UK private collection, reputedly acquired in the early 20th Century.
