An 18th Century Polychrome Carved Wood Horse

Naples, Italy

Early 18th Century

Carved and painted wood with inset glass eyes

Length 54 cm Height 51 cm Width 17 cm (21.5 x 20.25 x 6.75 in)

This beautifully carved equestrian model of a pacing horse recalls the Neapolitan terracotta creche models by such sculptors as Nicola Vassallo and Lorenzo Mosca.

In the Metropolitan Museum in New York (inv. no. 64.164.107) is a similar mid to late eighteenth century chestnut horse; however, the more stylised appearance of this sculpture indicates a date in the early part of the 18th century.
