Fernando of Tuscany on Horseback

1695. Bronze. Not on display

A bronze equestrian statue with a white marble pedestal that probably represents Fernando, the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Dressed all´antica, he holds a baton in his right hand and the reins of his lively steed in his left. The rearing horse follows the prototype of Baroque equestrian portraits, transmitting an idea of power that was very customary in portraits from the Modern Era. This work was probably the one that belonged to the Marquis Leonardo Tempi in Florence in the early eighteenth century. That is where the artist worked for the Medici family. It was later acquired by Carlos IV and entered the Spanish Royal Collection at the end of that century.
