Jean de Boulogne detto Giambologna
(Douai, 1529 - Firenze, 1608)
School of

Giambologna, Probably 17th-18th century

Bronze with transparent golden patina
sculpture: 24 x 26 x 9 cm
The horse repeats the equestrian statue of Cosimo I de' Medici, located in Piazza della Signoria in Florence. Giambologna successors' foundry, such as Antonio Susini, created little models inspired by that monumental sculpture.

Fine and well-finished fusion with light transparent patina in golden tones, typical of ancient Tuscan production. Similar model can be found in Victoria and Albert Museum, attributed to Antonio Susini.  

With non-coeval base in wood and ruin marble.
