Two limestone carved heads circa 1530, attributed to the Master of Rumilly

These two finely sculpted heads, though accidented, represent respectively a Jewish notable, perhaps Nicodemus, and a sleeping soldier, certainly the soldier of the Resurrection scene. They come, therefore, from an altarpiece of the Passion, which can be stylistically located to the school of Troyes (Champagne, France) around 1520-1530.

It is to the Master of the altarpiece of Rumilly-les-Vaudes, identified by Jacques Baudouin, that we can attribute our heads, because of their facial features, especially the flat nose, the small mouth, The eye-profile in v, and the marked dimples. To this may be added the very elongated chin.

The original altarpiece is not identified. It may remain, at least partially.

Mounted on bronze bases with medal patina.
