Bust dating from the Roman period, 150 AD and neoclassical head dating from the early 19th century by Luigi Pampaloni (1791-1847).
Purchased in 1844 in Florence in the sculptor's workshop by the ancestors of the last owner, diplomat to the Holy See at that time. In fact, it was not uncommon for Italian artists to use ancient sculptures to complete them.
Our white marble bust is the representation of the third emperor of the Roman Empire, Caligula?
We have something very rare, the vintage invoice.
