Adam and Eve, Pieter Xaveri, 1671

ivory, h 17cm More details

Between 1670 and his death in 1673, the Antwerp sculptor Pieter Xaveri lived in Leiden, where he specialized in small figures modelled in clay. Thanks to these signed ivory figurines, we know that he also pursued that specialism. Xaveri has here abandoned his quick and expressive style in clay modelling in favour of fluid, yet restrained forms.
