Baroque Putto


In the ancient classical world of art, Putti were winged infants that were believed to influence human lives. They are a classical motif found primarily on child sarcophagi of the 2nd century, where they are depicted fighting, dancing, participating in Bacchic rites, playing sports, etc. The putto disappeared during the Middle Ages and was revived by Donatello in Florence in the 1420’s.

Given how putti heads are structured, this course is an optimal exercise for understanding the basic approach behind every stone sculpture as well as ideal for acquiring confidence with most tools of the trade such as various measuring methods and chisels.
