Description

This terracotta sculpture is an example of the realism that Guido Mazzoni (1450 - 1518) succeeds in impressing on his creations, in harmony with the highest results of the artistic culture of the Po Valley in the second half of the fifteenth century, following the lessons of Donatello and Mantegna . Even if the polychromy is not the original one, it still gives the idea of ​​how the sculpture should appear at the time of its realization. Coming from the collection of the Calori Cesi accounts of Modena, but originally in the collection of Pietro Vitali in Busseto, the head entered the Estense Gallery in 1909. It may be what remains of the lost Compianto already in the church of San Lorenzo in Cremona, of we have news of this thanks to the handwritten notes written in the early sixteenth century by the Venetian patrician Marcantonio Michiel (1484–1552).
