This sculpture is one of a number of stylistically related statuettes linked to Conrad Meit. The early seventeenth century witnessed a revival of interest in the style of Albrecht Dürer and his contemporaries. This carving, less refined than a smaller version of the subject in the Museum's collection (17.190.582), is thought by some to date from the so-called Dürer Renaissance.
