Lorenzo de Medici

This large-scale 19th-century patinated bronze version of Michelangelo’s Lorenzo de Medici is a beautiful and valuable piece of art. Here are some key features and characteristics of this piece:

  1. Michelangelo’s Lorenzo de Medici: The original sculpture was created by Michelangelo around 1525 as part of the Medici Chapel in the St. Lorenzo Church in Florence, Italy. It is a masterpiece of Renaissance art, depicting Lorenzo de Medici, a member of the powerful Medici family, in a contemplative pose.
  2. 19th-century bronze version: This sculpture is a large-scale, 19th-century bronze version of Michelangelo’s original. It has been crafted using the lost-wax casting method, which involves creating a wax mold and then casting the bronze. The bronze has a beautiful patina, which gives it an aged appearance.
  3. Barbedienne foundry marks: The sculpture is stamped on the back, and there are Barbedienne foundry marks on the side. The Barbedienne foundry was a famous French foundry that produced high-quality bronze sculptures in the 19th century.
  4. Height: The sculpture stands at an impressive 73 cm tall, making it a significant and eye-catching piece of art.

Overall, this 19th-century bronze version of Michelangelo’s Lorenzo de Medici is a stunning example of artistry and craftsmanship. It is a valuable and significant piece of art history, and a beautiful addition to any collection.
