This large and handsome sculpture is carved from marble and was executed in the second half of 19th century, most probably in Naples, Italy.
It is Carrara marble, a single piece, and is a tour-de-force of observation. The boy's costume, with the jaunty knitted cap, the loose shirt with its rolled-up sleeves, up-standing collar and open front, the rolled-up trousers and bare feet, is absolutely fully of detail, and finely carved, as is the net and indeed the chap's successful catch.
He is posed looking straight ahead, with a pleased look on his face, and the sculptor has stood him "contra-posto", all his weight on one leg and hand on hip, on a naturalistic rock base.
