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

Detail of the grille

1438-42
Bronze
Duomo, Prato

From 1438 to 1442 Maso executed part of the bronze grille of the Cappella del Sacro Cingolo in the cathedral, until a dispute halted his work. It is Gothicizing in style, with a pattern of delicate rosettes and elegantly twisted stems of naturalistic plant forms interspersed with animals and putti.
