Attributed to Artus Quellinus II (1625-1700) and workshop
Southern Netherlandish, Antwerp, second half 17th century
LAMENTATION GROUP

Provenance

Private collection, the Netherlands

Description

This moving Lamentation bears a striking resemblance to the work of Artus II Quellinus, one of the foremost sculptors active in 17th-century Antwerp. In mood, design and figural style, the present group relates closely to Quellinus's Coronation in the Church of Notre-Dame de Leliendael, Malines (Philippot, op. cit., p. 891, fig. 2). Compare also the facial type of the left hand Angel, in particular, with the Angel in the Funerary Monument of Anna-Catherina de Lamboy in Hasselt, as well as a wood Saint Michael in the Rijksmuseum (inv. no. BK-1978-35). The Angel on the right appears to be by a different hand, testifying to the close collaboration between Antwerp sculptors of this time. Similarly designed Angels are found, for example, in the work of Jan Pieter van Baurscheit the Elder (1669-1728, see op. cit. 1977, nos. 151-152).
