Jacques-Edmé Dumont French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 552

The composition, in particular the crossed ankles, derives from ancient Lansdowne Paris type statue, known from Roman copies after mid-fourth-century Greek original, which Dumont would have seen in Rome and Naples during 1788–93. The pose of Dumont's version, however, is much more supple than that of its antique prototype. It was possibly intended as a sketch model for a silversmith.
