VITTORIA, Alessandro
(b. 1525, Trento, d. 1608, Venezia)

Montefeltro Altar

Cappella Montefeltro, San Francesco della Vigna, Venice

In November 1561 Vittoria was commissioned to work on the altar in the Montefeltro Chapel, San Francesco della Vigna. The statues of St Anthony Abbot (centre), St Sebastian (right) and St Roch (left) show him in full command as a sculptor of life-size figures. He was not, however, responsible for their architectural setting which is by Francesco Smeraldi.
