Saint bishop in oak - North of France, first half of the 14th century

This very beautiful oak sculpture represents a holy Bishop wearing his miter. The system of folds in the chasuble, quite sharp and protruding, allows us to date the work from the first half of the 14th century, and to bring it closer to an equivalent holy bishop from northern France, now kept at the Musée du Louvre (inv. RF 2056). The decorative treatment of her hair with expertly sculpted curly locks, her sensual mouth with fleshy lips and her fine almond-shaped eyes suggest, however, that our artist may have been influenced by contemporary works made further east, between the Meuse, the Rhine and Lake Constance.
