ADRIAEN DE VRIES (C. 1556-1626)

Antiope and Theseus

c. 1600-1

RCIN 57961

George’s apartments at each of his residences were liberally adorned with French and Italian bronzes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This striking work represents Theseus, the legendary king of Athens, abducting Antiope, queen of the Amazons. The dynamic, spiralling pose of the two figures suggests it was intended to be viewed in the round.

Probably acquired by George IV
