Antique Busts

The tradition of the sculpture bust dates to the Republican era of Ancient Rome, when realistic portraits of dignified individuals were produced in marble and bronze, their likenesses shown from the shoulders up.

Antique busts have been used for centuries to line libraries and corridors, the sculpted marble and cast bronze portraits most often portraying philosophers, kings, poets, and artists.

Mayfair Gallery offers an exceptional range of antique busts, from portraits of Alexander the Great to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, King and Queen of France, to nineteenth-century French Orientalist portrayals of figures in Arabic dress.
