Footnotes

  • Provenance: Purchased from The Adams Collection, Bonhams 23 May 96, lot 55.

    Previously associated with the Roman foundry of Guglielmo della Porta (1500-1577), this unusual - almost portrait-like statuette may instead be from a generation or two later. The coiffure is consistent with the 1630's and the casting recalls the technique of Fanelli.
