Offered here for your consideration is a large-scale and very finely modeled Grand Tour bronze sculpture after the Greco-Roman model of "Spinario" or the "Boy with Thorn" by Benedetto Boschetti. With a stunningly beautiful weathered verdigris patina. (This bronze had been in a garden setting for the last many decades).
Boschetti ran an important shop on the via Condotti in Rome from about 1820-1860. His workshop was responsible for extraordinarily fine reductions of many of the iconic Antiquities that so dazzled travelers on their Grand Tours through Italy in the 19th century. He won a medal at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. The Boschetti shop displayed many of the high quality wares that we now associate with the Grand Tour, and signed works come to market only relatively infrequently.
Signed to the plinth: B. Boschetti - Roma. This sculpture dates to the mid 19th century.
It is in overall good, as-pictured used estate condition. The surface is mottled and weathered from outdoor exposure. There are slight fissures to the toe, a fissure to the front foot, light edge wear, fine and light surface scratches and scuffing throughout, oxidation to the underside, and other signs of expected light wear consistent with age.
