Virgin and Child in majesty in ivory carved... - Lot 206 - Goxe - Belaisch - Hôtel des ventes d'Enghien
Virgin and Child in majesty in ivory carved in the round with minimal remains of gilding. The Virgin is seated on a throne-bench, her bust upright in a frontal attitude, carrying the Child in front of her seated on her knees; head crowned with a veil falling in a point in the back with a zig-zag pleat; the Child is dressed in a robe and a mantle, holding a sphere in his left hand and blessing with the other one; garments marked with parallel folds with deep V-shaped folds on the front of the Virgin's knees. Most probably 16th/17th century in the style of the Middle Ages. (Small missing parts). H. 30,3 cm - Width : 10 cm - Weight : 2 190 g. Evoking the Auvergne Virgins while being similar to the 13th century Virgin in the Cluny Museum collections (inv. CL 398), this important and interesting Virgin in ivory of beautiful quality of execution seems to testify to a taste for Romanesque art well before the 19th century. An analysis report by the carbon 14 method carried out by the CIRAM laboratory on 28 May 2021 (no. 0521-OA-311Z) concludes that the ivory was dated between 1516 and 1666 with a probability of 91.6%, without ruling out the possibility that it belongs to the late 18th century with a probability of 3.8%. This report will be given to the buyer.
