"Christ In Sainte-lucie Wood, Bagard Workshop, End Of XVIItf Century"
  • Bois Saint Lucia (Prunus mahaleb), original black velvet
  • Lorraine, Nancy 1680-1710
  • Lack of two fingers, good condition
  • Crucifix placed on a black velvet background is presented in a rectangular frame moldings decorated reversed a frieze of acanthus. Fabric background and parquetry of origin, missing two fingers. Registration trace on the back of the frame.
  • This crucifix has all the characteristics of French Christs of the late seventeenth century: a beautiful drape that covers the perizonium a hip and leaves the other discovery; Christ is alive, his head is not crowned and looks skyward; a beautiful middle parting hair to releasing the forehead and forming loops on the shoulders; hands nailed to the palm; a slightly lame body; the parallel legs and feet side by side. These Christs are made in a kind of cherry wood from the St. Lucia by workshops from Nancy. The two large workshops which have produced these crucifixes are those of César Bagard (1620-1709) or Foullon Caesar (died in 1698) his godfather. The inventory after death of Caesar Foullon shows a set of objects such as we find them today: boxes or square frames, mirrors, brushes and trackers, candlesticks, tobacco grater, chess pieces, pincushions, bellows, rosaries, statues and crucifix ... the absence of a signature does not allow to associate a particular workshop from Nancy, only the quality suggests a production of one of the above two workshops.
