Emilio Zocchi, who trained under Girolamo Torrini, Aristodemo Costoli and later Giovanni Dupré, was mostly active in Florence. He is best known for the equestrian statue of Victor Emmanuel II, a monumental work which was finished in 1890, and the bas-relief on the façade of the church of Santa Croce.
The present sculpture is a particularly beautiful marble, with finely executed details, especially on the surface of the jacket and the concentrated frowning expression on the boy's face.
