Bequest of John L. Severance 1942.781
This statuette belongs to a group of terracotta sculptures representing David (from the OldTestament) and Saint John (from the New Testament) produced by a still unidentified Florentine artist and his studio in the late 1400s and early 1500s. Giventheir scale, it seems likely that these sculptures were intended for use in private homes rather than churches.
