The Apollo from the Schinousa Archive
Apollo from the Schinousa photographic archive
Cambridge-based researcher, Christos Tsirogianns, has shared an image of a fragmentary marble Apollo with me. It had featured in the Schinousa archive. This photographic archive records the material that passed through the hands of a London-based dealer. If material from this archive resurfaces on the market, it would be reasonable to see the full collecting history indicated. But such information would no doubt be provided by rigorous due diligence searches.
