Patina Options

Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order to order is to be expected.

Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.

 

FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.

The Madonna is seated on a bench, holding the baby Jesus on her lap. He grasps at her robes, and she leans over and brings her face close to his. There are at least two original marble sculptures in existence from which the relief in our collection may be derived. Similar depictions of the Madonna and Child in relief were produced widely during the Italian Renaissance, including by the Florentine sculptors Donatello (c.1386-1466) and Desiderio da Settignano (c.1429-1464) and their workshops. The existing reliefs may be based on a lost work by Donatello, but they are attributed to da Settignano and his workshop. Da Settignano was a master at portraying the faces of women and children in his sculptures, several of which can be found in the Caproni Collection.
