Description: A bronze model of a young man, sometimes called Tobias(?), possibly workshop of Andrea Riccio, first half 16th century, portrayed standing and attired in a tunic and boots, a pack on his back, the cudgel held over his left shoulder with a socket at the upper end, the bronze 17cm high, atop a later turned and ebonised wood socle, 24cm high overall A very similar model is held at the Berlin-Dahlem Staatliche Museen. In that example, whilst the posture, the inclination of the head, the left hand grasping the cudgel which holds his pack, the folds in the tunic and even the rather flat modeling of the skin surfaces are almost identical, there nonetheless remain slight differences. In the model offered here the booted feet are parallel to each other whiilst in the Staatliche Museen example the stance differs with the feet at an angle to each other. The museum example also has the lowered right hand as open, whereas the present example has the hand holding a fish hanger, an implement portrayed by Antonio del Pollaiolo, Pia Moeller and others in pictorial representations Comparative Literature: Wilhelm Bode, The Italian Bronze Statuettes of the Renaissance, M.A.S. de Reinis, New York, 1980, p 91 and illustration 2, plate XXXVI Provenance: Property from a private collection, London
