Study from a statue by: Pierre Francqueville (1548-1615) & Francesco Bordoni (1580-1654)
4 captives (close up on one of them)
" These magnificent life-size bronze Captives once stood in the four corners of the pedestal of the equestrian statue of King Henry IV, erected on the Pont-Neuf, Paris. With elongated muscular silhouettes and hands bound firmly behind their backs with rope, seated rather precariously on trophies, they epitomize late Mannerist art."
