C1880 19cm Grand Tour Diana of Knidus


A finely modelled bronzed speltre figure of the Venus of Knidus, the original being a 4th century Bc Greek sculpture by Praxitiles. Our finely modelled example is bronzed speltre mounted on a later wooden socle. Such figures were souvenirs of the Grand Tour, made through Europe to Rome (but never to Athens!) by the male gentry of the 18th and 19th centuries.
