ETRUSCAN TERRACOTTA PORTRAIT 
5th - 4th centuries BC 
height cm 23 

Molded votive head of a boy, with prominent facial details and pleasant expression. The head is depicted with full and slightly open lips, almond-shaped eyes characterized by prominent upper lids and arched eyebrows and short hairs, finely incised. Traces of the original color scheme are still preserved. A specimen from the same workshop - head of a woman - was in Sotheby's on 12 June 2001, lot 81.

Provenance. English private collection; acquired in the 1980s in Paris, possibly from the La Reine Margot gallery.
