QUELLINUS, Artus II
(b. 1625, Sint-Truiden, d. 1700, Antwerpen)

God the Father

c. 1682
Marble
Sint-Salvatorkathedraal, Bruges

The statue is from the rod screen of the Bruges Cathedral.

The generous plasticity of his work, its stresses on gesture, its opulence and its handling of draperies make Quellinus almost a rival - in sculpture - of Rubens.
