Le Gladiateur Borghèse et sa restauration

Author(s): Brigitte  Bourgeois, Alain  Pasquier

€ 3.81 tax included

A masterpiece of ancient sculpture, the marble statue of a fighting warrior known as the Borghese Gladiator underwent restoration in 1996-1997. The purpose of the restoration was twofold: to improve the condition of the ancient artwork while retaining the spirit of the first restoration done in the 17th century for the Borghese collection. Through a study of its restoration, this book gives readers a deeper understanding and appreciation of one of the Louvre’s finest sculptures.
