Bust of Flora


Giovanni Battista Bacigalupo (Genoa 1836 – post 1909)
Bust of Flora
white marble,1880s
The Throne Room

This work was originally inventoried among the private possessions of the king, who bought it at one of the Promotrice exhibitions held in Genoa in the second half of the 19th century. The finely portrayed young woman can be identified as the goddess Flora by the flowers adorning her hair and the rose in her neckline. The pose of the figure and the sculptural approach, while still steeped in romanticism, already reflect the naturalism established also in Genoa during the late 19th and early 20th century.
