Crucifixion Ivory, Italy end of the 17th century

This Ivory Crucifixion brings together Christ on the cross and Mary Magdalene, proven, kneeling in her foot. This group was originally to be composed of a larger number of figures (Virgin, Saint John ...) who were all to find their place around the foot of the cross, the ensemble was probably designed as an altarpiece for a private chapel . These works constitute a valuable testimony of Italian ivory sculpture at the end of the 17th century. The artist demonstrates here his great virtuosity as a sculptor, combining technical brilliance in ivory sculpture with a great mastery of anatomy. Provenance: Former Versaillaise collection
