    The great Hellenistic marble known as the “Barberini Faun” is one of the key works in the Western canon. Since it was unearthed in Rome in 1627, the Faun, which is now in Munich, has undergone several restorations, some by renowned sculptors. Looking at the earliest model for the first restoration of the Faun which the Harvard Art Museums acquired last year, this lecture will explore the reception and history of the celebrated sculpture.
