Footnotes

  • Severo da Ravenna was a contemporary of Andrea Riccio, working in Padua in the first half of the 16th century. The art historian Leo Planiscig was the first academic to ascribe works to Severo da Ravenna in 1935, based on a bronze signed O. SEVERI.RA of a sea monster. Since then a large body of work has been confidently attributed to this important sculptor. A comparable bronze of a kneeling satyr with Severo da Ravenna's initials was sold by Christies, London, 8 July 1981 (lot 341); and numerous other versions are known with minor variations in pose, surface treatment and patination.

    A bronze satyr of similar form was sold in the Yves Saint Laurant et Pierre Bergé collection, lot 485, 23 February, 2009, Christies, Paris.
