(b. ca. 1488, Napoli, d. 1558, Napoli)

High Altar

c. 1530
San Lorenzo Maggiore, Naples

Marigliano received the commission for the High Altar of the church of San Lorenzo Maggiore in 1528. The High Altar with the statues of Sts Lawrence (Lorenzo), Francis and Anthony, belongs to the best works by the artist. It reflects the influence of the Spanish Bartolomé Ordóñez, who arrived in Naples in the early years of the second decade of the sixteenth century. In the layout the references to Donatello are very strong.
