Antico (Pier Jacopo Alari Bonacolsi) Italian
This bronze is one of four in the Museum's collection by the goldsmith-sculptor Antico, so-named because of his adherence to models of classical antiquity. Here, he adapted the torso of an ancient marble for what may have been a lamp made for one of his foremost patrons, the Gonzaga family of Mantua.
