The Frick Collection presented an exhibition of bronze statuettes by or related to Severo Calzetta, called Severo da Ravenna, an important but little-known Italian sculptor of the early sixteenth century. Complementing the five bronzes in The Frick Collection attributed to Severo or his workshop were loans from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and two New York private collections. The only known bronze bearing the sculptor's signature and a number of related but quite distinct versions of his original models were included.
