Overview

The statue Victorious Youth, popularly known as the "Getty bronze," is one of a very few life-size bronzes from ancient Greece known to exist in the world today. These surviving pieces are representatives of literally thousands of such statues that were once displayed in sanctuaries, city centers, and private homes and gardens, belying the modern perception that they are one-of-a-kind works. In this first full-length study of the sculpture in more than twenty years, the author takes into account the most recent art-historical information and scientific data. Included is a complete conservation report.
