This is a wonderful early bronze figure of Agrippina.This is signed Angelo Derossi Roma.Derossi born 1671 died unexpectedly in 1715.He lived in Rome all his adult life.Not much is known of his life or works. He created statuary for a no. of churchs and did several classical figures for early Grand Tour travelers including Hercules,The Gladiator and this one of Agrippina.Statues of her are quite scarce I could only find reference to a couple on the internet one unsigned and the other by the Zoffoli brothers of Rome. Their version is later by about 50 years and seems to be from the same mold as the Derossi version as it is the same size finish and detail.The Zoffoli version brought over $15000.00 in 2006.Only 3 figures by Angelo Derossi have ever shown up in auction records with the high being $40000.00.This figure is 11 1/4 inches tall and 11 3/4 inches long.The dark green patina is in amazing condition for its age with just a few small spots in the patina.A chance to own a nice early Grand Tour bronze that has been in my collection for a number of years.
