(b. 1668, Padova, d. 1752, Napoli)


Italian sculptor. He was trained in Venice and became one of the best known sculptors of his period in Venice. When called to Naples by Raimondo di Sangro, Antonio Corradini had come to the end of a career that had taken him through Germany, Austria, and Bohemia; his Rococo style was understandably permeated with foreign influences. He died in Naples where he did the greater part of his work. He excelled in veiled statues (Modesty, Sansevero Chapel, Naples). His bas-reliefs, in a very pictorial style, are extremely delicate.
