Head of a King


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

Analysis of the limestone of this head points to Amiens as a possible origin. Stylistically, it appears to date about half a century earlier than the sculptural works of the great cathedral there. It may be from a major, but as yet unidentified, portal in or near Amiens.
