Actor with Right Arm Extended

Description Provenance Credit
Description The grimacing face drawn into a grimace, with broad mouth, snub nose, and deep furrows across the forehead indicate that the figure is an actor. He wears the clothing of a slave- a short tunic tied over one shoulder and a broad belt circling his exaggeratedly twisted lower torso. Slaves were favorite characters in Roman comedy, as they had been in Greek theater.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
