Imposing white marble bust representing the Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope. Italy, first half of the 18th century.
Diogenes of Sinope, known as the Cynic, was an ancient Greek philosopher. Considered one of the founders of the Cynic school with his master Antisthenes. In ancient and modern times, his personality has attracted many sculptors and painters. Ancient busts and statues exist in the Vatican Museums and the Louvre as well as in the park of the Palace of Versailles, where a bust of Hermes of the philosopher by the sculptor Matthieu Lespagnandelle was placed in 1688.
Our bust bears the inventory number of a collection and comes from the patio of a Lombard villa where, in antiquity, many busts of philosophers were kept, now lost.
Very good state of conservation, an old restoration on the nose.
