"Bust of the Greek Slave"

Hiram Powers (1805-73), the U.S. sculptor, modeled this bust of a young female Greek slave while living in Florence. Powers was a leading neoclassical sculptor in the nineteenth century and his Greek Slave (1843) became the most popular statue in Europe and the United States in the mid-nineteenth century, though it was considered scandalous. His son, Longworth Powers (1835-1904), photographed it.
