Netherlandish, probably Antwerp, circa 1540
RELIEF WITH AN ALLEGORY OF EDUCATION

Catalogue Note

The elegantly elongated, almost Mannerist forms of this group, and the woman's headdress, relate to sculpture from Antwerp around 1540; compare a relief with the Circumcision in the Musées Royaux d'Art et d'Histoire, Brussels. Its worldly subject is indicative of a Renaissance environment.
