The Montaguragazza Style

Quentin Maule

pp. 61-74, Tavv. 10


The two larger bronzes from the votive stipe of Montaguragazza, discovered in 1882, are generally considered major monuments of the etruscan art. Over the years a rather large number of bronzes has come to be ascribed, usually on stylistic ground, to the school of Montaguragazza or to the related workshops. This paper will examine some of these attributions in order to define if possible the actual characteristics of Montaguragazza style.
