Risen Christ by Michelangelo

Code S111

The famous marble statue preserved in the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome was carved around 1520 by Michelangelo Buonarroti.

An alleged first version of the statue, known as Cristo Portacroce Giustiniani (today in the monastery of San Vincenzo in Bassano Romano) is attributed to Michelangelo who dissatisfied would have left it incomplete.

The reduction proposed here is taken from a nineteenth-century a bronze for the Grand Tour collectors.
