DALLE MASEGNE, Jacobello
(d. 1409, active in Emilia)

Biography

Italian family of sculptors and architects. Jacobello [Giacomello; Jacobellus; Jacomelo] dalle Masegne (active from 1383; d. after 1409) and his brother Pierpaolo dalle Masegne (active from 1383; d. c. 1403) were the sons of Antonio dalle Masegne, a stonemason in Venice. They usually undertook and signed their major commissions together, as was the common practice in Venice for family partnerships. However, although there is no documentary evidence to prove it, it is possible to recognize their individual styles in separate sections of their collaborative works.
