Saint Jean de Calvaire.

Walnut, with original polychrome and gilding.

France, Burgundy, c. 1420 – 1430.

Provenance
Private collection, France.

Carved in the round, with extensive remains of the original polychrome and gilding, this beautiful Saint John of Calvary stands barefoot on a mound, the toes of his right foot visible, his head turned to the right, draped in a cloak worn over a simple tunic with a slit at the neckline. His left arm and hand covered, the missing right hand exposed from the sleeve, his cloak is draped across one shoulder, the heavy fabric falling in full voluminous ‘V’ shaped folds and undulating pleats on the right, a large folded flap of material visible at his back. Beardless, with almond eyes, prominent cheekbones and a square jaw, his curled waved locks of hair, arranged in two rows, form a crown and ‘skull cap’.
