21 ATTRIBUTED TO LUCA DELLA ROBBIA (ITALIAN, 1399-1482): AN IMPORTANT 15TH CENTURY TIN GLAZED EARTHENWARE RELIEF DEPICTING POPE MARTIN V the rectangular maiolica relief panel depicting a portrait of Pope Martin V in profile in white on a blue ground, facing left, dressed in cope and papal crown, his coat of arms (a column within a shield) to the upper left corner, inscribed at the base ‘MARTINVS V’, the reverse signed ‘LRO’ in blue, later mounted on a walnut panel with four fleur de lys iron brackets holding the panel in place, 46.5cm high x 33.5cm wide, the wooden mount 73.5cm high x 52cm wide Sold with a copy of a thermoluminescence analysis report dated 1/8/2018 from Arcadia Tecnologie per I Beni Culturali, Milan, stating that the sample taken indicates that the date of the object is consistent with the presumed dating of the piece, 15th century. Pope Martin V was known as Otto di Colonna (1368-1431) before his papal election, hence the column depicted in the top left corner. His greatest achievement was ending the Western Schism at the Council of Constance in 1417, and he remained Pope until his death in 1431. Luca Della Robbia was the head of a family of artists famous for the glazed terracotta technique used in the present relief. Luca invented the technique which was to revolutionise terracotta sculpture in the 16th century. The bright glaze which has survived six hundred years and is still rich in colour, meant that his sculptures and portraits were easily seen in dark interiors or chapels, and the terracotta was easier to produce than carving in marble or stone. 21 (detail) Literature: A comparable relief is illustrated in Catalogue of Gothic and Renaissance Italian and French Art, The Tolentino Collection, the American Art Galleries, April 1924, New York 1924. Here attributed to Luca della Robbia. £12,000-£18,000

As well as religious and reliquary busts, portrait busts of particular patrons were produced for specific commissions, for example see the late 15th century terracotta portrait bust in the Metropolitan Museum, New York which depicts a young man, probably a member of the Medici family. Museum No. 41.100.239, which is of similar form to the present bust.

44 43 A LARGE PAIR OF 18TH CENTURY SOUTH GERMAN / AUSTRIAN BAROQUE CARVED WOOD PUTTI circa 1730, the winged cherubs with arms gesturing, with iron loops applied to the back to hang, 86cm high (2) The Baroque notion of putti as plump baby boys was derived from ancient Roman reliefs and statues, usually lightly clad or naked and often with wings, so that pagan images of Cupid could be confused with those of angels (cherubim). They were pioneered in early Renaissance art by Donatello, and became especially useful adjuncts in sculpture, where they performed supporting, mourning, or comforting roles on and around shrines, tabernacles and tombs. Such flying cherubim became one of the favourite motifs of the Baroque in Rome, often inspired by the need to lighten the sombre mood of images of cruel martyrdoms that were so emphasised in the imagery of the Counter-Reformation. Originated there by Algardi, Bernini and Duquesnoy, they rapidly became standard features in the repertory promulgated by their followers and throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. The present pair of putti were most likely part of a large decorative scheme around an altarpiece, gesturing towards a large painting or panel. £4,000-£6,000 44 AN EARLY MEDIEVAL CARVED WOOD RELIEF PANEL DEPICTING LIONS probably a 13th / 14th century coffer panel, carved with two lions passant centred by a Maltese cross and flanked by a palm leaf either side, within a border of scrolls, 147cm wide x 44cm high £1,000-£1,500

Her eyebrow hairs have been individually tooled and her hair swept back. Her physique is strong and stocky with her small breasts very close together, the nipples well cast over the delineated rib cage. The drapery has been finely tooled in places to suggest different textures and a pattern throughout, cast separately it is screwed on to the back of her left arm and the side of her left thigh, with a further separately cast part attached just below her bottom. A supporting bronze bracket has been applied to the base and screwed to her back. These physical features show the influence of the important German sculptor Leonard Kern. £2,000-£3,000

52 A PAIR OF 17TH / EARLY 18TH CENTURY BRONZE GROUPS DEPICTING LION ATTACKING A BULL AND LION ATTACKING A HORSE AFTER GIAMBOLOGNA (ITALIAN, 1529-1608) the dramatic groups with dark brown patination and finely delineated fur, the Lion and Horse inscribed: 18652B and: 137-1 to the underside, and each base incised: CC51 to the underside, one with remnants of a label, raised on gilt bronze mounted solid portor marble plinths, the bronzes: 20cm x 27cm and 21.5cm x 25cm, the plinths each 10.5cm high x 27cm x 26cm (2) The finely delineated hair and fur apparent in the present pair of bronzes, worked into the surface with minute incisions indicate a 17th century date of manufacture and are also visible in the casts of the sculptor Francesco Fanelli. Giambologna derived the Lion Attacking a Horse from an ancient Greek

fragment (now in the Palazzo dei Conservatori, Rome); and produced Lion Attacking a Bull as a pendant bronze. Both are typically high Baroque in their dramatic depiction of a life and death struggle between the lion and the domesticated beast, in each example the lion’s claws tearing at the delicate flesh as the contorted body of the animal wrestles to survive. Typical of Giambologna’s compositions, the bronzes are small scale and designed to be viewed from multiple angles rather than a single frontal plane. Examples cast by Antonio Susini (Italian, 1558-1624) are in the J. Paul Getty Museum (Inv. no. 94.SB.11.1) and comparable examples are recorded in the following museums: Bargello Florence Frick Collection, New York Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna Louvre Museum, Paris Similar models were in the 1978 Arts Council Giambologna exhibition at the V&A Museum, London. £12,000-£18,000 17
