Catalogue Note

According to the Golden Legend, St. Quentin was a 3rd century Roman who travelled to Gaul as a missionary and lived for a time in Amiens. Because of his preaching, he was imprisoned and tortured. One of his tortures included being manacled to a chair, which is how he is presented in the present lot. He is venerated in particular in Picardy, Northern France. For an early representation of St. Quentin see J. Boccador, Statuaire Medievale en France de 1400 a 1530, 1974, vol. I, p. 48, fig. 34.
