Bronze Master at The Frick Collection

Satyr and Satyress, c. 1510-20, Bronze, Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Don't miss one of the funniest and masterly bronzes ever created. And don't miss some 30 other sculptures by the Renaissance artist, Andrea Riccio (1470-1532) now in New York at The Frick Collection.

Watch for my next blog to learn about the Satyr and Satyress including the erotic symbolism of the slung leg motif and chin-chuck. Also, learn how best to view the bronzes and deepen your understanding of active looking. More is coming soon.
