The Musée Jacquemart-André, a Parisian gem that is well known to specialists but has also attracted countless visitors, houses one of France’s most important Italian art collections, assembled thanks to the numerous trips that two passionate collectors, Édouard André and Nélie Jacquemart, made to the peninsula. The group of small bronzes on display (Florence, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, 12 May–31 August 2007) includes over 50 works, most of which connected with Florence’s important sculptural tradition of the 15th and 16th centuries: from mythological and religious reliefs to medals, everyday objects such as inkwells, lamps, mortars and caskets, little equestrian statues and the small-scale versions of famous sculptures. This core collection is complemented by a group of ‘Florentine masterpieces’, with works attributable to the circle of Donatello, Verrocchio, Jacopo Sansovino and Daniele da Volterra.
