Antico worked in Mantua, where for many years he was in the service of the noble Gonzaga family. He specialized in the manufacture of bronze statuettes, whose subject matter and style were modelled on examples from Classical antiquity. This particular statuette may have been intended for the collection of Isabella d’Este, the art-loving wife of Francesco Gonzaga.
