BIGARELLI, Guido di
(active ca. 1238, died 1257)

Pulpit

1250
Marble
San Bartolomeo in Pantano, Pistoia

In 1250, Guido signed and dated the pulpit in San Bartolomeo in Pantano. Following the tradition of Guglielmo's (active 1158-1165) pulpit for the Cathedral in Pisa (now in Cagliari Cathedral, 1159-62), Guido's pulpit is rectangular and has two tiers of reliefs. Classicising in style, the carved New Testament narratives manifest a compact solidity of form with sharply incised details that are especially evident in the carefully delineated drapery forms.
