FAYDHERBE, Lucas
(b. 1617, Mechelen, d. 1697, Mechelen)

Mater Dolorosa

c. 1640
Marble, life-size

Faydherbe executed this statue while he was still in Rubens's studio. The style of this work shows a remarkable affinity with the style of Rubens's later figures; it is probable that Rubens produced the original design.
