Catalogue Note

Antonio Natali, active in Florence in the second half of the 19th century, was mostly known for his genre sculpture in marble and funerary monuments. The present sculpture shows Natali's interest in dynamic and finely carved sculptures with an allegorical interpretation. Interesting to note is the use of the same model by Natali's contemporary Ulisse Passani (op. cit. no. 1397), whose work is preserved in several public collections in Parma.
