"Pair Of 17th Century Wood Statues"
Pair of carved wooden statues, gilded wood and polychrome, height 210 cm, height 140 cm, the two sculptures including plinth in white marble of 70 cm, representing two male characters of the Venetian school of 600. We publish with great pleasure and enthusiasm this magnificent pair of carved wooden figures, real gem for lovers of high time and sculptures in particular. Undoubtedly, even for the neophytes of this field of art, the emotion felt when observing works as expressive as loads of force, as can be seen on the faces of the two characters in question. The two works of art, photographed here in detail, were engraved with force in the woods around the middle of the 17th century. They are standing upright, with their bodies and faces raised in an almost sacred attitude, with harmonious body movement and drapery, soft and wavy, resulting in a very dramatic style, full of strength, but also refined and wise. The presence of much of their polychrome and their original gilding is extraordinary for the works of this era. we can affirm that for the time and the conservation, it is about collectibles, rare on the market. The remarkable qualitative level of these works is evident both in the virtuosic postures of young people and in the analytical restitution of anatomical and expressive data. The chiastic pose, to which the arms and drapes of the garment correspond, concludes the elegant realization of the body. The slanted head and the expression of the look underline the expression of humility and dedication of these two statues. Some details of the composition are remarkable, including the setting of the hair rather than the weaving of the drapery; In conclusion, the whole composition is of great effect, where the two characters become an opportunity for the sculptor of the seventeenth century to conduct a thorough investigation of the actual data described. To return to our works of art, I would like to focus on the pleasing bill, found especially in the draperies of the clothes, where the polychrome is contemporary and carefully crafted, with passion and devotion, while undoubtedly highlighting the intense expressiveness of faces and colors. bright dress and coat. The work, like all our objects, is sold accompanied by a certificate of photographic authenticity; This document identifies the object by adding value to the article. We take care of the transport and personally organize the packing and the shipping of the works of art with insurance everywhere in the world.
