A figure of a putto, seated; white marble
H. 46 cm x w. 47 cm
Northern France or Flandres
A sleeping putto, sitting on a rock, the head resting, supported by its right hand, the left hand holding a poppy, thus referring to the Allorgy of the Night.
From iconographical point of view this group was probably part of a pair, of which the pendant, i.e. the Allegory of the Day, was either lost or is now part of another collection.
