Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

The Crouching Venus was first recorded in the Villa Medici in Rome in 1704. The figure is known in many early versions and was also copied well into the 19th century. The sculpture was such a popular image that grand tourists visiting Rome in the 19th century purchased numerous examples in various sizes, with slight variations to the composition.
