Marble Bust of Jesus Christ (1901) by Samuel Kitson

27,500.00

Christ is shown with His head tilted slightly to the right and a sombre downward gaze, stylized hair falling in long waves on the shoulders and folds of His tunic. The deeply carved white marble lends to the highly representational element of the sculpture. Base of pedestal is signed "Sam. J. Kitson, 1901".


The devotional bust may be derived from Andrea del Verrocchio's celebrated figure of the "Redeemer" from his "Christ and St. Thomas" bronze group on the exterior wall of Orsanmichele in Florence.


Samual James Kitson (1848 -1906) was an English sculpture who studied in Rome, after which he established studios in Italy and the United States. Kitson eventually moved to the United States, with active studios in New York and Boston, during which time he produced portrait statuary and architectural elements of a religious theme.

Dimensions: 32 x 24 x 13 in.
