White marble bust of Gaius Octavius, Roman workshop, first half of the 19th century.
The bust depicts the young nephew of Julius Caesar who later adopted him, changing his name to Caesar Octavian Augustus.
Almost all neoclassical sculptures had a model and ours is among the most illustrious: it is a replica of an original work depicting the so-called young Octavian, from the Augustan age, dating back to the end of the 1st century BC. exemplified by the portrait from the Julio-Claudian period, sold by the famous Roman sculptor Vincenzo Pacetti (Rome 1746-1820) to the Vatican Museums (inv 714) exhibited in the Pio Clementino Museum. Everything refers to the portraiture of the Augustan era: from the design of the hair, with the locks in the central part in a swallowtail, the spacious forehead, the gaze up to the posture.
