Diana of Gabi, 19th century

Beautiful statuary white marble sculpture depicting the "Diana of Gabi". Italy. First half of the 19th century H. 108 cm.

HISTORY. The Diana of Gabi is a statue depicting a woman wrapped in drapery; she most likely represents the goddess Artemis, and is traditionally attributed to Praxiteles. In the past it was part of the Borghese collection and is preserved in the Louvre Museum.
The statue was discovered in 1792 by Gavin Hamilton, in the properties of Prince Marcantonio IV Borghese near Rome, where the city of Gabi stood in ancient times, and was immediately included in the prince's collection. In 1807, due to financial difficulties, Prince Camillo II Borghese, son of Marcantonio, was forced by Napoleon to sell 344 works from the Borghese collection to France. Since 1820, Gabi's Diana has been on display in the Louvre.
