(b. ca. 1430, Verona, d. ca. 1499)
Monument of Niccolò Tron (detail)1476
Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, Venice
Tron is represented lifesize and full length twice in the monument: once as an effigy, lying on his bier, and then again standing in his robes of office, facing outward, as if to accept the homage of the viewer. In both representations his garments were originally polychromed and his features portrayed with a powerful realism.
