Marble female figure

Attributed to the Bastis Master

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 151

Cycladic sculptors produced several identifiable types of marble female figures but with slight variations. Some groups of figures with similar proportions, style, and execution have been attributed to individual artists. The elongated, highly stylized form of this example’s body is characteristic of the Bastis Master, named for its twentieth-century collector. Like all artists in this period, the sculptor’s real name is unknown.
