Lot Essay

Donatello's bronze original in the Piazza del Santo, Padua, was the first Renaissance equestrian statue, circa 1445, to commemorate the condottiero Erasmo da Narni.
The present example was cast from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York's original cast now in an institutional collection.
