Catalogue Note

The Master of the Bull Hunt was a Neapolitan sculptor active in the circle of Lorenzo Vaccaro (1655-1706). The movement of the Roman soldier aiming at Saint Paul is comparable to the figure of Saint George in the Museo Riminaldi, Ferrara, and the figure of the falling Saint Paul to the one of a Defeated Moor sold at Sotheby's on 2 April 1985, lot 144 (see J. Montagu, op. cit., p. 100-103 and 111).
