What we take for granted in representative expressions of the human form today – torsion – (reference Newton’s ‘Synergy’ picture for Wolford) – is a distinguishing feature of the developmental step-change in ancient Greek sculpture.
The unknown Greek master who sculpted this form, sculpted it one thousand six hundred years before Michelangelo sculpted his Renaissance masterpiece ‘David’, c. 1501 – 1504.
This is, of course, not news.
However, as regards the study, composition and craftsmanship, there is arguably little of substance to separate them.
I can only reiterate that the ancient Greek master and Michelangelo are separated by one thousand six hundred years.
