Description

A near-identical cast of the present bull was sold in these rooms on 12 December 2003, lot 209, while a less vigorously modelled gilt bronze version was formerly in the collection of the Hungarian-born Baron Paul Hatvany (1899-1977) and sold at Christie's, 25 June 1980, as lot 37. The model relates loosely to a Europa and the Bull by Giovanni Battista Foggini (1652-1725) in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (inv. no. M.3-1968) but is likely to have a more northern origin.
