About

This oil lamp represent the head of a satyr. It's typical of the Mannerism style, when was quite devolopped the taste for mythological and pagan subject and for curious object. It can be ascribe to the circle of Andrea Riccio (c. 1470 – 1532),an Italian sculptor and occasional architect, whose real name was Andrea Briosco, but is usually known by his nickname meaning "curly". He was specialized in small bronzes, often practical objects such as inkwells, door knockers or fire-dogs, exquisitely sculpted and decorated in a classicising style. He was born at Padua, and first trained as a goldsmith by his father, Ambrogio di Cristoforo Briosco. He later began to study bronze casting under Bartolomeo Bellano, a pupil of Donatello. As an architect, he is known for the church of Santa Giustina in his native city. His masterpieces are the bronze Paschal candelabrum in the choir in Basilica of Sant'Antonio at Padua (1515), and the two bronze reliefs (1507) of David dancing before the Ark and Judith and Holofernes in the same church. His bronze and marble tomb of the physician Girolamo della Torre in the church of San Fermo at Verona was beautifully decorated with reliefs, which were taken away by the French and are now in the Louvre. His smaller, easily transportable, works appealed to collectors across Europe.
