Andrea Briosco, called Riccio (1470-1532)
This work made ca. 1515 was inspired by an antique original now housed in the Glyptothek in Munich. Riccio's interpretation however increases the drama to create a balanced tension between movement and resistance. It was Riccio's aim to interpret contemporary themes in the spirit of the antique.
