The Jack and Belle Linsky Galleries feature medieval and Renaissance bronze statuettes from the Jack and Belle Linsky Collection, an assemblage of 380 European works of art, including many masterpieces, that the Linskys donated to the Museum in 1982.
The installation in this gallery re-creates a sense of the collection as it existed in the Linskys' home. A highlight is the statuette of a standing Pan by the Mantuan goldsmith-bronze artist Pier Jacopo Alari Bonacolsi, who was nicknamed "Antico" because of his emulation of ancient sculpture. The statuette in all likelihood belonged to a member of the Gonzaga family, rulers of Mantua, and Antico's chief patrons.
