“Abduction of the Sabine Women” Metal Sculpture after Giambologna

About

A circa 1940s substantial cast metal sculpture done after Giambologna’s late 16th century masterpiece “Abduction of the Sabine Women”, and attributed to Fonderia Chiurazzi. Influential Florence-based Flemish sculptor Giambologna (b. 1529–1608) created the original 13-foot-tall marble sculpture upon which this piece is based between 1574 and 1582. It’s a notable example of the Mannerist or Late Renaissance style which emphasized asymmetrical composition and unnatural elegance, and embodies the action, movement, and tension that were Giambologna’s hallmarks. Produced for Francesco Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, it’s prominently displayed in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria. This large and heavy cast metal sculpture is a very well executed and emotionally faithful interpretation of the original subject matter. Unsigned, but almost certainly produced by the famed Fonderia Chiurazzi of Naples, Italy. Has a richly patinated bronze applied finish, and stands on a stepped travertine base.
