Art HistoryIn the seventeenth century, small bronze statuettes were highly prized in the princely houses of Europe. This small bronze figure was originally in the collection of the Hapsburg ruler, Maria Theresa of Austria. It is executed with great skill and compositional refinement. The graceful sensuousness of the female figure and the naturalistic pose encourage the viewer to admire the work from every point of view.
