Weighty Negotiations: The Equestrian Monuments of Philip III and Philip IV

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In December 1604, Grand Duke Ferdinando de' Medici warned his ambassador at the court of Spain about the costs and political risks involved in sending a proposed bronze equestrian monument to Madrid, writing "it is a good idea to . . . understand well the wishes of the King, since it will cost very much money, and then, if he didn’t like it, it wouldn’t be worth anything." The transportation of sculptures from Florence to Madrid was seen as an essential component of diplomatic relations in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Sculptures of all sizes, subjects, and media were sent with regularity despite the enormous labor, risk, and financial cost of such shipments. In my paper, I will examine the processes, accidents, and other difficulties, and financial and political considerations involved in the shipments of Pietro Tacca's two five-ton equestrian statues sent from Florence for Philip III and Philip IV.
