Standing Goat


Sculptor: Riccio, Andrea (Andrea Briosco) (After)
Founder: Unknown




Copper alloy, probably bronze, with slightly polished brown patina.

Copper alloy, probably bronze, cast, with slightly polished brown patina. The goat is long-haired, whose shaggy coat has been shorn around its rib and belly. Its head is characterised by a long beard, small downwards turned ears that lie flat against the side of the neck and medium-sized corrugated horns that sprout backwards and curve gently sideways at their tips. Its head is raised inquisitively and its mouth is held open as if bleating.


History note: Said to have come from the Hermitage Collection. A. Kotin Collection; sold to Alfred Spero, from whom purchased, with the Leverton Harris Fund, 1942.
