Our Inspiration:Crouching Venus

After a model by Giambologna (Netherlandish, 1529–1608)
Bronze, 17th century
Gift of Irwin Untermyer, 1968   68.141.25

This bronze is based on an invention by Giambologna. While the anatomical rendering of the legs, reserved physiognomy of the face, “impressionistic” locks of hair, and smooth definition of musculature accord with the more refined studies after Giambologna’s designs, less coherent is the dull and simplistic treatment of the drapery, which doesn’t convey sinuous  movement. Rather, the work exudes a frozen elegance. The
ambiguities in The Met cast suggest a later dating, likely to the 17th century.
