Price: Not Available
Description: Firenze: Polistampa, 2011. 24cm., pbk., 80pp. illus., several color. Summary: The Porcellino sculpture in Florence's Mercato Nuovo is an essential part of the city's collective imagination. This volume traces the story of the Porcellino, a seventeenth century bronze boar inspired by an original second-century marble Greek sculpture brought to Florence from Rome by Cosimo di Medici. Various restorations and copies of the work over the years speak to its importance, not only within the Medici court but also within Florentine culture and naturalism in art history.
