After Georg Petel (1591-1644), South German, late 17th / early 18th century
Saint Sebastian

Catalogue Note

The ivory figure of Saint Sebastian in the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum in Munich, carved by Petel circa 1628-30, has greatly influenced contemporary artists and followers. Five ivory and wood versions are known of this fine masterpiece, in Zurich, Berlin and Kassel museums. The present version, wonderfully carved, resumes the original model with more svelte treatment of the body and a more tragic expression in the face (see K. Feuchtmayer et A. Schädler, Georg Petel, Berlin, 1973).
