Antique Chromo Lithograph with Hermes Statue 1898

Antique chromolithograph depicting a most famous antique Greece statue: Hermes

Size: each 6 x 9,5 inches, good condition. There is a semitransparent sheet which shows the torso of the sculpture excavated in Olympia. This layer shows some ageing.

Litho by Brockhaus Germany in 1898.

It looks great when matted and framed and makes a unique gift.

Hermes and the Infant Dionysus, also known as the Hermes of Praxiteles or the Hermes of Olympia is an ancient Greek sculpture of Hermes and the infant Dionysus discovered in 1877 in the ruins of the Temple of Hera, Olympia, in Greece. It is displayed at the Archaeological Museum of Olympia.

It is traditionally attributed to Praxiteles and dated to the 4th century BC, based on a remark by the 2nd century Greek traveller Pausanias, and has made a major contribution to the definition of Praxitelean style. Its attribution is, however, the object of fierce controversy among art historians.
