This exquisite figure may have given Michael Angelo the hint for the unfinished marble entitled "The Slave," a cast of which is also in this collection--a fine, expressive figure, the purpose of which, other than that it was to be part of a monument, is not quite clear. [P. 11; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Casts." See entry 02860069 for other work noted in this commentary.]
