Self-portrait, Giambologna, c. 1600

gypsum, h 9cm. More details

Around 1600 Giambologna was considered the most famous sculptor active in Europe. The detailing of this polychromed plaster statue closely resembles that of his bronze self-portrait displayed nearby. Both versions would have been made from the same wax model.

On display in room 2.3-03 Giambologna
