GUGLIELMO, Fra
(b. ca. 1235, Pisa, d. ca. 1310, ?)

Pulpit

c. 1270
Marble
San Giovanni Fuorcivitas, Pistoia

This pulpit is the masterpiece of Fra Guglielmo da Pisa, an assistant of Nicola Pisano in Bologna. The style of the reliefs depends entirely on the example of Nicola and his workshop. The Late Antique and Early Christian debt is acknowledged openly, but it is mingled with the powerful currency of Tuscan Romanesque.
