Baroque marble sculpture, 17th century, representing a Putto hiding a basket of fruit.
The sculptural model of the "Torsion Putto" came out of Verrocchio's workshop at the end of the 15th century and was then taken up again in the Baroque period, a style in which the figure of the putto became the protagonist. The particularity of this model is precisely the position of the body in torsion, very difficult to achieve in sculpture: in our case the putto, with its mischievous look, hides a basket filled with fruit under a sheet. The balance of decoration and proportions, the softness of the forms reminds us of the sculptor Alessandro Algardi (1598-1654), who contributed so much to the panorama of Italian Baroque sculpture.
