SLEEPING ARIADNE

Catalogue Note

Known as The Sleeping Ariadne, and also often identified as Cleopatra, this reclining figure was carved after the antique prototype dating from the late Hadrianic period (itself a copy of a 2nd century BC Greek prototype) in the collection of The Musei Vaticani, Rome. The statue was first recorded in 1512 as having been acquired by Pope Julius II.
