The official announcement, made at the Capitoline Museums, where the 30 inch-high bronze is the centerpiece of a dedicated room, quashes the belief that the sculpture was adopted by the earliest Romans as a symbol for their city.

Classics in the Palms of His Hands
‘Antico,’ at the Frick Collection
Pier Jacopo Alari Bonacolsi (about 1455-1528) — or, as he was known, Antico, “the antique one” — was one of the most skilled and innovative sculptors of the early Italian Renaissance, celebrated during his lifetime for impeccably neo-Classical bronze statuettes of pagan heroes and gods. But his achievements were swamped and obscured by wave upon wave of generic desktop-size bronzes in the ensuing centuries, and his name was forgotten until early-20th-century art historians rediscovered him.
