Good condition.

Exceptional plaster mask, very expressive and with charm depicting Andra Mantegna, Italian painter and sculptor from the 15th century. Perfectly preserved. Due to its size, it is an important piece with great refinement. There is no signature but the perfect proportions and naturalness of expression indicate an experienced hand. The wax-polished terracotta tones finish give it an effective grace.
