Commentaire



Curatorial file in NGA, 21 July 2011:
This bronze was cast from a lost model that Michel Anguier executed in 1652, possibly in terracotta, for the jeweler to the French Crown, Laurent Le Tessier de Montarsy. As part of a series of gods and goddesses of Roman Antiquity, each is represented according to the temperaments, emotions and moods with which the deity was associated according to classical iconology. (The Arts of France from François Ier to Napoléon Ier. A Centennial Celebration of Wildenstein's presence in New York, 2005, n°33)
