Bust of Ottavio Farnese

National Gallery of Art, Washington

This larger than life-sized bust of Ottavio Farnese was cast in bronze by Galeotti, presumably from a model by Benvenuto Cellini. Ottavio Farnese (1524-1586) reigned as Duke of Parma and Piacenza from 1547 and Duke of Castro from 1545 until his death.
