Important marble bust of a divinized Julius Caesar. This type of baroque figure is a remarkable example of the willingness of Venetian artists to counter the general tendency of the late Renaissance to exacerbate perfection. In this bust, it is the expression that prevails. Caesar is certainly represented with a face with powerful features surmounted by a laurel wreath, symbol of his triumph and greatness. However, the character trait of the imperator, already mature, who dominates the composition is his wisdom and immortal glory.
The sculptor's work is refined and highly detailed, particularly for the representation of the cuirass and the draped toga.
It is a high quality piece that can be compared to the works of Orazio Marinali. A major Venetian baroque artist of the late 16th and early 17th century, he was trained by the Flemish, active in Venice since 1657, Giusto Cort (also known as Josse le Court)
