Unknown (Antique artist) (copy after)
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 23
The most remarkable contrast to both the previous representations of Apollo is afforded by another not less beautiful and finished embodiment in the sphere of action alloted to this god, which depicts his state of mental tranquility. We see him here, too, under the form of a tender youth, rather in the years of boyhood, than on the verge of manhood. He is leaning with his left arm on the trunk of a tree, to which he has attached his quiver. His right arm is stretched over his head, whereby the muscles of his breast are relieved, and his lungs enlarged. . . . Braun, Introduction to the Study of Art-Mythology, p. 21. [Pp. 17-18.]
