Deux statuettes

Beautiful set of two statuettes from the same Calvary of private devotion
Mary is wrapped in a large blue and gold coat tied at the waist, with gold chevron motifs on a black background, and a gold veil on a long carmine dress with gold motifs, executed in dotted line with the punch. Jean is dressed in a long deep green tunic with gold leaf decoration, and a red coat with gold chevrons, the highlights executed according to the same technique.
The baroque gestures, the movement of opulent clothes and strongly inclined faces, the
mannerist attitude in contrast, accentuate the dramaturgy of the scene. Interesting treatment of the
clothes, the juvenile faces, illuminated by the glass eyes, and the long thin hair of the
apostle
Naples, ca mid-18th
