Hellenistic Bronzes at the Getty

The Getty Museum is mounting an amazing exhibit of bronze sculptures from the Hellenistic and Roman worlds, 330 to 30 BCE. Above, Head of a Poet. Lots of amazing stuff from museums in Italy; I wonder if this was part of the deal when the Getty returned all that stuff that turned out to have been looted?

Portrait of Aule Meteli, 125 to 100 BCE.

Portrait of a Man, c, 100 BCE.

Boy Removing a Thorn from his Foot, c. 50 BCE.

This one goes by the informative title Head of a God or Poet, first century BCE.

Sleeping Eros. More at the Getty's web site.
