CA0972 Grand Tour Painting of Alexander the Great as Helios
Interesting, original, mid 19th century oil on canvas painting of the mask of Helios. Probaby based on the Alexander as Helios bust in the Capitoline Museum in Rome or the bust of Helios in the Rhodes Archeological Museum. There are various versions of this bust throughout European capitals including the Death of Alexander in the Ufizzi in Florence. Unsigned, but annotated on reverse of canvas 'Ex l S.K. 1866'.
