Madonna del Soccorso

Sant'Anna dei Lombardi, Naples

In 1532 Marigliano completed the altar of the Madonna del Soccorso (Virgin of Succour), commissioned by the Liguoro family, a pendant to another altar by Girolamo Santacroce for the del Pezzo family in the same church. Both follow earlier Tuscan models, and the juxtaposition highlights Marigliano's awkward figure designs and his dependence on other sculptors' formulae.
