BERTOS, Francesco
(active 1693-1733)

Humility and Faith

c. 1700
Marble, height 86 cm
Museo del Prado, Madrid

The composition recalls the "serpentine" figures created by Giambologna and continued by his workshop until the beginning of the eighteenth century. Several marble works by Bertos are known in the Royal Palace of Turin. The allegorical groups in marble are much simpler than those made in bronze. The models are less stylised and do not carry the multitude of allegorical elements that figures in bronze.
