The Young Archer

Govaert Flinck's painting of A Young Archer (see posts below) reminded me of this combined graphic I made of the statue The Young Archer, which is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Velez Blanco Patio. It used to be named The Marble Boy when it stood in the Fifth Avenue mansion that houses the Cultural Services office of the French Embassy in New York. Then somebody attributed it to a teenage Michelangelo (title link). I'm not getting into that debate. As far as I know, statues made from marble cannot be carbon-dated to establish when they were carved.
