GAETANO ROSSI, AFTER THE ANTIQUE
PSYCHE OF CAPUA
sigend and dated: GA.NO ROSSI / 1877
Overall the condition of the marble is very good with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There is some minor veining to the marble, consistent with the material, including some darker veins to the chest just above the proper left breast, and to the waist on the proper right side. There are a few minor naturally occurring inclusions including to the chin. There is a small circular area of wear just below the nose. There are a few small dirt marks to the front. There are some minor chips and abrasions to the edges of the base, and the base appears to have deliberately been left irregular to the reverse. There is some white paint around the edge of the base.
