Lot Essay

This pendant is taken directly from a bronze plaquette of Saint Sebastian attributed to the late 15th-early 16th Century North Italian master, Moderno. There are two examples in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (7346-1861 and A 431-1910), described in E. Maclagan, Catalogue of Italian Plaquettes, London, 1924, p. 32.
