Label on the back from John Richardson stating the he conferred with the late James Draper of the European sculpture department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art who suggested this bust was by Giacomo Ponsonelli.
33 x 31 in.
Note: Giacomo Antonio Ponsonelli (1654-1735) born in Massa Carrara first trained as a sculptor in his father's (Giovanni Ponsonelli) workshop. He also trained in Genoa with his father-in-law, the famous Filippo Parodi, who worked with Bernini in Rome for 6 years at the height of the baroque movement. Ponsonelli's own work evolved and became more prolific after Parodi died in 1702. He was known for his portraiture, although he worked on the dramatic high altar in the cathedral of Nostra Signora delle Vigne in Genoa which was finished by his pupil Pasquale Bocciardo posthumously. One of Ponsonelli's famous works is of a bust of Diana which is now in the Louvre in Paris. The exaggerated flowing treatment of the fabric on the above offered lot is in keeping with some of Ponsonelli's work.John Richardson: A Scholar Collects
