Catalogue Note

The present relief is based on a print from the explicitly erotic Lascivie series by Agostino Carracci (1557-1602), of which a copy is in the British Museum (inv. no. U,2.158).

Beautifully carved, this sensuous Baroque relief can be attributed to Giovanni Bonazza, who was one of the leading sculptors active in the Veneto in the early 18th century, creating reliefs and figurative groups for palaces and villas throughout the Venetian Republic. Compare with the four reliefs by Bonazza which sold in these rooms for £221,000 on 9 July 2015, lot 156.
