About this work

Description

A man holding an ecorche statuette. The statuette is based on a model designed by Ludovico Cigoli, il Cardi, sometimes called La bella notomia, or Lo scorticato. The original wax model was produced by Cigoli around 1600 in Florence, with casts made from it soon after in bronze and plaster. The figure met with great popularity in its own time and casts have continued to be produced subsequently .
