Catalogue Note

Several variants of this Renaissance bronze, copied after the Antique, exist in museums including the Jacquemart André, Paris and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Widely attributed to Camelio by early scholars, Warren (op.cit., p. 268) questions the attribution of this group of Hercules statuettes to Camelio, and instead ascribes a different cast of Hercules in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford to that sculptor.
