See: Finch & Co catalogue no. 7, item no. 35, for another small gilded bronze
The art of the small bronze statuette that had reached such perfection in classical antiquity languished somewhat during the Middle Ages, but was reborn with the Renaissance and it is these diminutive sculptures, which capture the spirit of that great epoch.
Small figural gilded bronzes were often used as decoration on Renaissance table cabinets or house altars.
