Sculpture

 

 

The Museum has a few bronze, marble and wooden sculptures of very good quality, such as the bust of Alessandro Algardi or the famous Renaissance bronze "The Redeemer", formerly attributed to Severo da Ravenna, as well as some archaeological bronzes. Very important are the two 19th century marble sculptures by Lorenzo Bartolini, as they are directly linked to the history of the Poldi Pezzoli family. One is the bust of Gian Giacomo's mother Rosa Trivulzio, in the "Dante Study", while the second is the famous "Trust in God" of 1833, which is also connected to Rosa Trivulzio's life as it refers to her widowhood. Among the new acquisition there is a small 16th century bronze that may be based on a Leonardo's design.
