Garden Statuary: Constantino Corti (1824-1873): An impressive marble figure entitled Il Vincitore

Estimated Price:
£6,000 - £10,000

seated on a rocky outcrop
190cm.; 75ins high

Constantino Corti worked together with another Milanese sculptor Pietro Calvi (1833-1884) on a number of occasions. They are responsible for some of the figures in Milan Cathedral and works at the Gallerie Vittorio Emanuel. Corti is known to have made a colossal statue of Lucifero which is in the Museo Nacional de Belles Artes Buenos Aires. The variation on the theme of the Devil is only different in the treatment of the hair and toenails and the wings, which are lacking, producing powerful and striking images without any of the satanic qualities which characterise other similar versions of this piece which was also executed by Pietro Calvi. A bronze example entitled Lucifero was sold at Sothebys London on 21st June 1988.
