Sculpture, Polychromed Walnut, Spain, 16th Century
Male figure with dark hair and beard, dressed in tunic and mantle, sitting and with an object in his right hand. The iconographic attributes are not sufficient to identify it, being able to be an Evangelist or another of the Apostles. The anatomy, the posture of the figure, the folding, etc. refer to models already influenced by the Italian Renaissance, which comes to Spain as early as the first third of the sixteenth century by the hand of Italian artists, imported works, etc. (although in this time still survive gothic models). In the second third of the century these previous influences are abandoned and classicism is imposed (consolidating Valladolid as the main artistic center of the moment) already speaking of a marked Mannerism. From here it was evolved towards a classicist or Romanist mannerism, emerging in the Court of Madrid a prominent focus around Philip II and El Escorial." Size: 32 x 22 x 47 cms.
