Christ - Styles and Influences
Andree del Verrocchio?
(Florence, 1435 - Venice, 1488)
In the mid-15th c. Florentine sculptors made an increasing number of portrait busts, giving them individual features. The figure of Christ was always one of the most frequent subjects. The head of Christ in this sculpture is slightly turned to the left. His long hair, parted in the middle, falls down to the shoulders, the thick locks, at the back slightly curling at the ends. The noble face is framed by a beard.
