Venice, around 1600

Attributed to the workshop of Girolamo Campagna (1549-1617). Campagna settled in Venice in 1572 and soon run an important sculptor’s workshop who was primarily known for its high-quality small bronzes.

Especially his mythologic figures, often produced as decoration for andirons, served as models for numerous venetian bronze foundries.

The ideal of the Ancient World are shown here in the picture itself as well as in its excellent treatment.

The spear was added later.
