We are proud to present you this magnificent Baroque Statue from the late Andres Laszlos Collection of 1000 years of Religious Sculptures.
The Handcarved Wooden Figure is a typical Spanish depiction of Mary with the Infant Jesus. While two Angels are kneel in front of her she is holding the Christ Child in her arm and a scepter in her other hand. She is beautifully carved and has a stunning Polychrome finish. A very typical representation of Spanish Baroque sculptures dating to circa 1720-1760. The figure was most likely carved in Navarra in the North of Spain. About 50 years ago - when this sculpture was displayed amongst the former owners gallery exhibits - the late Spanish Art History Specialist Maria Luisa Gomez Moreno validated "The Crowned Virgin". The Statue comes with a copy of the last exhibition catalog where Moses is listed as item number 73.
Provenance: Andres (Andras) Emerico Laszlo (von Keller) - famous author - found this amazing example of baroque Craftsmanship in Navarra, Spain. It was purchased in the 1940's or 1950's during Laszlos extensive travels through Spain and America where he gathered his collection of religious art.
Exhibitions: The last exhibition of this statue was during Laszlos last exhibition in 1969 at the Gallerie Jean-Francois Apesteguy in Deauville, France. The exhibition was called "1000 ans de sculptures primitives espagnoles". There were many more exhibitions of his large collection in the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Germany and more. They were very well received and celebrities like the famous painter Joan Miró visited them (Please see the picture of Miro and Lazlo at one of his exhibitions)
