Lucretia, Tuscan school?, 17th-18th century

Bronze. Dark patina with reddish tones
sculpture: 11 x 22 x 9 cm
The composition depicts the death of Lucrezia. Lying on the bed, she still holds the sword that pierced her in her hand.

The composition is influenced by similar bronzes by Giambologna, such as the Sleeping Nymph, but above all by the Ariadne in the Vatican Museums, archaeological sculpture purchased by Pope Julius II in 1512 for the Belvedere gardens.

The warm, reddish color of the patina recalls Tuscan productions of the 17th-18th centuries.
