MASO DI BARTOLOMMEO
(b. 1406, Capannole, d. ca. 1456, Dalmatia)

Candelabrum

1442
Bronze
Duomo, Pistoia

In 1440, Donato de'Medici, Bishop of Pistoia, commissioned from Maso a bronze candelabrum and two pedestals for silver candlesticks, which were completed by the end of 1442. The monumental candelabrum is still preserved in Pistoia Cathedral and shows a classicist taste in the decorative finishes that recalls certain details of Donatello's works.
