Crowned Head of a Woman

South Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

This engaging head was probably carved in the French court of Robert of Anjou (r. 1266–85) centered in Naples. Its classical overtones are related to works by Nicola di Bartolomeo da Foggia,who signed the masterful pulpit at the Cathedral of Ravello in 1272.
