Product description

A study of one of the most important statuary groups from classical antiquity. This work deals with what is probably the most successful and well-documented statuary groups from the Hellenistic Age, the Farnese Bull in the National Museum in Naples. Using the rich historical materials connected with the sculpture, the author ascertains the form and sense of the orginal group, which is now lost, but also follows the further history of the work through antiquity to early Christian times. A separate section examines the history of the ownership and impact of the sculpture in modern times.
