Ambivalent Auras (Classical Contrasts) – 37

I’ve now started to take photographs of the casts of subjects in the Museum of Classical Archaeology that correspond to the figures in the grounds of Anglesey Abbey.


Apollo Saurokontos: From a Roman marble copy, c.350 BCE, of a Greek bronze original by Praxiteles. Purchased from the Louvre in 1884.

Apollo Belverere: From Roman marble copy of a Greek bronze original.  Transferred to the Museum from the Fitzwilliam Museum in 1884.

Choiseul-Gouffier Apollo: From Roman marble copy of a bronze original, c.460 BCE.   Donated by H Sidgwick in 1880 to the Fitzwilliam Museum from Brucciani of London.  There is no certainty that this male nude represents Apollo
