FOGGINI, Giambattista
(b. 1652, Firenze, d. 1725, Firenze)

Portrait of Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici as a Child

Marble relief, 20 x 16 cm
Alberto Bruschi Collection, Grassina

The almost three-dimensional bust is on a background of black marble. The frame is made of the yellow marble of Siena. The white bust recalls not only the cameos and gems of antiquity, but also the classicism of the Florentine sculpture of Luca della Robbia or Ghiberti.
