About

From Italy an extraordinary Italian Baroque polychrome earthenware Pity sculpture dating back to the early 18th century in good age related condition, with minor restorations, a terracotta group with beautiful, original polychromy and spectacular anatomy of the body of Christ. This antique terracotta pieta stands on green and gilt shaped poplar base. The Pietà by Michelangelo Buonarroti is one of the most famous Renaissance Old Master artworks and has surely inspired this statue which shows Mary Magdalene holding the dead body of Christ after his crucifixion, death, and removal from the cross, but before he was placed in the tomb. Listed size refers to the group on the wooden basement, the terracotta sculpture only measures: Measures: Height 36 cm by width: 59 cm by depth 35 cm This statue is typical of the Lombard Baroque sculpture consisting of those artists who gravitated around the construction site of the Duomo, the Milanese cathedral factory in Milan, a fruitful producer of sculptural works throughout 18th century. This antique Baroque sculpture comes from a Milanese private collection, it has been restored near the symbols of passion on the base: cracks have been re-glued and bound from below, see closed-up pictures. Two fingers of Christ's left hand have been replaced. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago requires a governative license for export called Belle Arti. The shipping may require additional 2/3 handling weeks to require and get the license according to the final destination of the artwork.
