Youth of the Narcissus Type


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description On better-preserved copies of the original statue, the youth is supported by a low pillar. His torso is off-balance, and his head would have been inclined forward and turned to the left, accentuating the S-curve of the pose. Experimentation with leaning poses that required a support was characteristic of the Late Classical period, as was the interest in accurately representing the body.
