Italian bronze statuettes from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century form one of the Museum's key specialized collections. Here all the leading centers of bronze founding are represented: Padua, with works of Bellano and Riccio; Mantua, with works of the goldsmith-bronze expert Antico; Venice, with the famous nude Saint Sebastian by Alessandro Vittoria, among other statuettes; and Florence, with sinuous figures by Giambologna and the Mannerist school.
