Portrait head of an elderly woman 40-20
Portrait head of an elderly woman, Late
Republican or Early Imperial, Augustan, ca. 40–20 b.c. Roman Marble, pigment H.
10 1/4 in. (26 cm) Purchase, Philodoroi Gifts, 2000 (2000.38) This fine portrait
conveys a dignified sobriety and modesty befitting an upper-class Roman matron.
She wears a hairstyle fashionable during the Augustan period, distinguished by a
central flat braid pulled back over the top of the head. The strict frontality
and serious expression of this work resemble funerary portraits displayed in
family tomb monuments and communal tombs (columbaria). Significant amounts of
red pigment are preserved in the hair, lips, eyebrows, and eyelashes. The right
eye retains black pigment in the pupil and red and yellow pigment in the iris.
All of this preserved painting appears to have been a preparatory underpaint for
subsequent painting which was applied in successive layers in a tempera-like
technique. The sculpting and painting traditions of the Republican and Early
Imperial period were in many ways a continuation of Hellenistic practices, in
which elements such as the eyebrows, eyes, and hair received limited sculptural
definition and were defined and articulated in paint.
The above hairstyle is of me. I did my own
style. It was a new step for me because this is the first time i was able to
cornrow the back myself requiring two mirrors. I call this hairstyle the braid
waves because of the swirl in the braids.
