Marble portrait of a young woman


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 162

Said to be from Greece

This portrait of an attractive young woman has a simplified version of the hairstyle popular during the reign of the emperor Trajan. The rough finish at the back of the
neck indicates that the head was meant to be set into a draped statue.
