Female figure, perhaps a saint

Terracotta

Height: 34cm

Museum number: M51

Curatorial note

This small figure is probably Italian and the work of a Bolognese sculptor working in the mid-18th century, perhaps Antonio Schiassi (1722-77). It illustrates the catholicism of Soane's tastes which here embrace north Italian rococo.
