The Department of Classical Studies
Since its rediscovery at Hadrian's Villa in 1736, the Red Faun now in the Capitoline Museum has been among the most admired of ancient classical sculptures. Its rare stone, exuberant subject, and virtuoso carving have won it renown and ensured its place in standard art surveys. Like most antiquities found during the eighteenth century, however, it underwent restoration to achieve the near-perfect state then deemed desirable by artists, dealers, and collectors. This talk aims to unravel the Faun’s complex history to understand it as an ancient statue in an imperial context.
