Classical torso 16th century
A wonderful 16th century draped female torso in classical style. Made in France under Italian Renaissance influence this female torso is finely sculpted with great detail to the stola and garments. The figure itself standing in contraposto to suggest movement. Acquiered on the French auction market in 2019 from the Jouve collection. Jean Pierre Jouve was a French master architect who oversaw many important French Restauration projects during decades.
