About the Book

The Cleveland Apollo is most likely the only surviving original sculpture by Praxiteles, and the only life-size Greek bronze that can be securely attributed to a Greek sculptor by name. This new focus volume is both a personal account of an acquisition, and a rigorous art-historical re-examination of one of the most significant works to survive from antiquity.
