Dying Gaul (Dying Trumpeter) Marble, c.. 220 BCE. Roman copy of Greek bronze original.
Things to think about when studying:
- What artistic period is this from?
- Which elements of the sculpture are indicative of that period?
- This sculpture was super popular - how did people demonstrate how much they liked it?
I don’t remember the first two but I do remember that people copied it endlessly and that seeing this sculpture was part of a “grand tour” of Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. Oh and Napoleon stole it.
Also, this happened:
John DeAndrea (American, born 1941), Dying Gaul , 1984, polyvinyl and polychrome with pigment. On display at the Portland Art Museum

This is my dream (b)log. You don’t want to miss this.

Okay, seriously. What was the name of this book.
I remember reading it all the time as a kid, and now it completely escapes my mind
I couldn’t remember either, so I googled “sparkly fish kids book,” which were apparently perfect search terms. It’s called “The Rainbow Fish.”
