The Museo del Prado houses a magnificent Baroque bust carved from Carrara marble. Closely related to Rubens’ models of Pseudo-Seneca, which in turn derived from the classical works which the Flemish painter had admired in Italy, the Prado head contributes to our understanding of the artistic production of one of the most talented and imaginative Baroque sculptors, Giuliano Finelli from Carrara. Together with Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Finelli, who worked between Rome and Naples, contributed to revolutionise the marble portrait in the early decades of the seventeenth century.

Abstract

The Museo del Prado houses a magnificent Baroque bust carved from Carrara marble. Closely related to Rubens’ models of Pseudo-Seneca, which in turn derived from the classical works which the Flemish painter had admired in Italy, the Prado head contributes to our understanding of the artistic production of one of the most talented and imaginative Baroque sculptors, Giuliano Finelli from Carrara. Together with Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Finelli, who worked between Rome and Naples, contributed to revolutionise the marble portrait in the early decades of the seventeenth century.
