|LOMBARDIA - Milano|
|FILE : Milano Duomo 19|
|TITLE : Grotesque (c)|
LOCATION: Milano, Cathedral, sXIX window, panel 7b
DIMENSIONS: 60.5 x 48 cms.
PROVENANCE: Milano, Cathedral, New Testament window (sII )
AUTHOR: Currado Mochis da Colonia (attribution)
SUBJECT(S): A gargoyle in yellow pot metal glass representing a lion protome supporting a fruit festoon
CRITICAL NOTES: C. Pirina noticing the close affinities with the grotesques of the Saint Catherine of Siena stained glass window (Milano, Cathedral, window n XI ) surely executed by Currado Mochis (1562), believes that this glazier painted this panel and the two preceeding panels to complete the New Testament window (see the files 17-18)
CONDITION: The gargoyle and the upper part of the red ribbon present two heavy mending leads. The fruit festoon is a replacement by P. Bertini.
