Christ at the Column, Tuscan school, 17th-18th century

Bronze with brown patina
sculpture: 31 x 11 x 8 cm

The subject was often treated by Giambologna and his school during the 17th century. There are examples that are not identical, but quite similar in composition, attributed to Giambologna's followers. The examples are published by Avery (op.cit.pag. 138-139) and the one in the Michael Hall collection (op. cit. pages 132-133). The latter is attributed to the atelier of Antonio Susini or Barthelemy Prieur. The bronze in question presents similarities with these castings, in the slightly exaggerated twist and in the tone of the light brown patina.
