Thank you for this penetrating analysis of this most remarkable sculpture. We are thankful to the Italian museum and privileged to be able to view this in New York. I know of nothing that comes close to the portrayal of a human being as this. At Princeton Joe Brown had created two sculptures of a boxer. One, called the Victor, which I suspect was only cast in plaster and not in bronze. These were great works and can be compared this “Boxer”. I wonder if Brown used this Boxer as inspiration or as a model?

It would be interesting if you could send in a photo of the boxer by Brown.
