Severo Calzetta Da Ravenna Candlestick Depicting a Kneeling Satyr


Availability: 1 in stock


Candlestick depicting a kneeling satyr by Severo Calzetta Da Ravenna (In activity from 1496 and 1543, circa).
The model of the present bronze is the “kneeling satyr” attributed to Severo Calzetta da Ravenna, one of the main Paduan bronze sculptors of the first half of the 16th century, whose figure was rediscovered by Planiscig in 1935 (L. Planiscig, “Severo da Ravenna: der “Meister des Drachens” in “Jahrbuch der Kunsthistorischen Sammlungen”, Vienna 1935, pp. 75-85) with the identification of his signature O.SEVERI.RA on a bronze depicting a sea monster (until then, the same models had been variously attributed to Andrea Briosco known as il Riccio or to Bartolomeo Bellano). For comparison, see an analogous example created as a candlestick, formerly part of the Samuel H. Kress Collection and now at the Smart Museum of Art in Chicago (inv. 1973.58). The statue is made of bronze and is idelae for collectors of Renaissance art or art collectors.
