Copy of a bas-relief by Juan Martinez Montanes, "Santa Teresa de Jesus"

Keywords: Sculpture

The artist and title above describe how the artwork was described by Stirling Maxwell in, "The Annals of the Artists of Spain" (1848). Since the publication research has shown that the original polychrome terracotta relief is more likely to be by an artist from the circle of Juan Martinez Montanes, while the title is now believed to be, "St. Catherine of Siena Receiving the Rosary from the Virgin and Child", c.1620-50.
