Cordier, Nicolas. Il Franciosino (Manner Of)

This full-length statue of the Emperor Tiberius (42BC to 37AD) is striking in its combination of materials, also found in other works by Cordier such as the Saint Agnes made for the Roman church of that name and incorporating a classical alabaster bust. It is not known how the present work entered the collection of Queen Christina of Sweden, which was begun in the 1650s.

Gilt-bronze. 1615 - 1620
Tacca, Pietro (Attributed To)

Dressed in early seventeenth-century style, the King of Spain (1605-1665) is shown as a youth, while still a prince. The baton and his decisive way of holding the reigns mark a classic attitude of power that gives the figure its appropriate sense of majesty. It was probably made by Pietro Tacca, given its similarity to other sculptures of his. The horse follows the model of the famous ancient stat
