Bust of Marsyas at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
Permoser's grimacing and contorted stone figures on the Zwinger Palace in Dresden embody the German Baroque in sculpture. This agonizingly expressive bust of Marsyas, carved in Italy early in his career, reveals his absorption of the style of Gian Lorenzo Bernini and forecasts the distinctive manner Permoser would develop in his native country. The tortured expression of the screaming satyr Marsyas, flayed alive after losing a musical contest with the god Apollo, responds especially to Bernini's Damned Soul of 1619. The savage face riven by clenched brows and eyes squinting in pain, however, is distinctly the sculptor's own creation. Deliberately rough, flamelike hair contrasts excruciatingly precise details like the torn tongue. The bust's unfinished back and emplacement for a bracket suggest that it was originally intended for a niche, perhaps in a palace courtyard.
Portrait bust of Emperor Domitian at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
Domitian (r. A.D. 81-96), the third and final member of the Flavian dynasty of Roman emperors, was the younger son of Vespasian (r. A.D. 69-79) and brother of Titus (r. A.D. 78-81). Unlike his father and his brother, he was not regarded as a popular ruler and suffered damnatio memoriae [a] after his assassination. Nevertheless, several marble portraits of Domitian survive- the present example is one of the finest. This realistic portrait of him at about age forty expresses something of the absolute power that Domitian wielded over the entire Roman world, but it also depicts personal characteristics- notably, he wears a wig that concealed his baldness in later life.
