The most successful member of the patrician dynasty of the Julians is of special importance not only because of his outstanding position in the history of Rome. His march against his own homeland, the crossing of the Rubicon and his spectacular assassination in March 44 BC remain as unforgotten as his campaign of conquest in the north. His death is also the final death of the Roman Republic. And with it ends not only a state, but also an art form.
What is special about a bust of Caesar
At the end of the Republic, it had become important to show concern for the res publica . Always on the move to provide for the people, acting wisely and prudently. These important virtues are found represented in the veristic portraits of the late republican period. After Caesar's death, this view of rulers changes, and verism disappears from art. A bust of Caesar is thus special in two ways.
