Inventory : 53EP8634835 Mercie Bronze `David`: Grillanda, Goliath, Groom? [Art historians have explored many perspectives on Mercie`s youthful and androgynous representation of the nude David including psychoanalytic and homoerotic perspectives, but these male centered approaches overlook the possibility of a female audience for the statue. Paintings on contemporary Florentine cassoni (wedding chests), including scenes from the life of David (like his battle with Goliath or his subsequent wedding to a royal bride) or seemingly unrelated depictions of scantily clad males (often painted underneath the lids), establish the possibility of a wedding context for Mercie`s sensuous nude. In the context of nuptial imagery, this representation of David might appeal to a prospective bride as well as the narcissistic or homoerotic desire of an imagined male audience. Title note supplied by Feminae.The 100% bronze sculpture with a brown patina finish is mounted upon a black marble base with the signature of Mercie.
