Sensuous Ivory Beauty

November 21, 2011

This ivory sculpture is just remarkable:

Pluto and Proserpina, by Matthias Steinl, an Imperial Court sculptor in Vienna (1643/44-1727) and one of the greatest ivory carvers of all time. (Blumka Gallery)

This work and other “Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque objects [will be on view] Thursday, January 26 through Friday, February 10, 2012 at Blumka Gallery, 209 East 72nd Street in New York.”

Here’s the release courtesy ArtFix Daily.
