Hermes and the Infant Dionysus, also known as the Hermes of Praxiteles or the Hermes of Olympian is an ancient Greek sculpture of Hermes and the infant Dionysus discovered in 1877, in the ruins of the Temple of Hera, Olympian, in Greece. It is displayed at the Archaeological Museum of Olympian.

It is traditionally attributed to Praxiteles and dated to the 4th century BC, based on a remark by the 2nd century Greek traveller Pausanias, and has made a major contribution to the definition of Praxitelean style. Its attribution is, however, the object of fierce controversy among art historians.

The sculpture is unlikely to have been one of Praxiteles’ famous works, as no ancient replicas of it have been identified. The documentary evidence associating the work with Praxiteles is based on a passing mention by the 2nd-century AD traveller Pausanias. Read more…
