Don’t miss your chance to see one of the icons of Roman art on view in the MFA’s Roman Art Gallery only through May 1. The Capitoline “ Brutus\,” a world-famous bronze portrait of a Roman statesman is on loan fr om the Palazzo dei Conservatori/Capitoline Museum\, Rome\, for just a short time. The loan of this extraordinary work of art is part of an ongoing par tnership between the Museum of Fine Arts and Italy that started with the tr ansfer of thirteen antiquities to Italy in 2006. The head is believed to be of L. Junius Brutus\, founder of the Roman Republic\, and possibly ancesto r to the Brutus who assassinated Caesar. Long associated with liberty—and o ne of the earliest examples of Western portraiture—this image has been an i con of Roman art since its discovery in the 16th century.
