LOMBARDO, Pietro
(b. ca. 1435, Carona, d. 1515, Venezia)

Monument to Doge Pasquale Malipiero

-
Marble
Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Venice

The monument to the doge Pasquale Malipiero (died 1462) is work in Renaissance style by Pietro Lombardo. In the lunette is a Pietà. The three statues represent the Justice, the Abundance and the Peace. In the roundels: the coats of arms and the lion of St Mark. The two griffins, the winged shell, the richly carved corbels, and every other detail exhibits the overall perfection and elegance of the work.
