1839-1182, AJAX WITH THE BODY OF PATROCLUS [DEFENDS IT AGAINST THE TROJANS]

  • Reference Number: 1839-1182
  • Description: AJAX WITH THE BODY OF PATROCLUS [DEFENDS IT AGAINST THE TROJANS]
  • Current Collection: Unknown
  • Previous Collections:
    • Calandrelli drawing, Antikensammlung Berlin
    • Catalogue des pierres graves antiques de S.A. le Prince Stanislas Poniatowski ([1830?]-1833)
    • Christie's, London
    • Cades, T.: Impronte dell' Instituto
    • Furtwaengler, A.: Die antiken Gemmen (1900)
  • Material: Cornelian
  • Comments: Furtw√§ngler probably confused the Calandrelli copy of the Boncompagni collection, now in Boston, Museum of Fine Arts, coll. Warren, inv. 10.174, with the original when he believed it to be from the Poniatowski collection (Furtwaengler, A.: Die antiken Gemmen (1900): 112, pl.23.4 'ex Poniatowski collection'). It is more likely that Calandrelli's design for Poniatowski was an original composition, as the drawing suggests, and not a copy of the Boncompagni intaglio.
